Hematology of the Freshwater Fish, Notopterus notopterus in Relation to Physico-Chemical Characteristics of the Water

Full Text PDF


Hematological and some biochemical contents of the blood in relation to physico-chemical characteristics of the water have been studied in the fresh water fish, Notopterus notopterus. The results indicated that normal values have been found in comparison to the studies carried out in other fishes. Hence, the fish Notopterus notopterus is having favorable environmental temperature, pH and dissolved oxygen required for the fish to survive and regulate breeding activities.
