The blood creatinine, some blood enzymes, glutamic oxaloacetic tranaminase (SGOT) and serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) have been determined in four locally available Indian carp fishes such as Labeorohita, Catlacatla,Cirrhanamrigala and Labeofimbriatus to assess the kidney functioning in these fishes in relation to the aquatic body and their successful survival. The results indicate that the blood creatinine level is low with more or less uniform values in all the four species of fish. The higher values were observed for the two blood enzymes (SGPT and SGOT) in all the four types of fishes compared to the fish, Notopterus notopterus from our earlier studies and also reported in other fishes. Thus indicating normal functioning of kidneys and other organs in all the four types of fishes studied which are healthy and are probably not stressed.
