Olena Fedonenko, NataliŃ–a Yesipova, Tetyana Sharamok, The Accumulation of Heavy Metals and Cytometric Characteristics Features of Red Blood Cells in Different Ages of Carp Fish from Zaporozhian Reservoir, ILNS Volume 53, International Letters of Natural Sciences (Volume 53)
    The research was held in terms of Zaporozhian Reservoir (Ukraine) from 2014 till 2015 year. It was established that prussian carp (Carassius gibelio Bloch, 1782) and roach (Rutilus rutilus Linnaeus, 1758) underyearlings accumulate essential elements more extensively, especially zinc, comparing to adults ones. The species characteristic of heavy metals accumulation in the carp fish body was observed. The intensity level of erythropoiesis occurrence was higher in young fish of both species of carp fish. The specific features of cytometric characteristics of fish erythrocytes were identified: the relative amount of mature red blood cells prevailed in roach, and the area of mature red blood cells was significantly higher in prussian carp. In addition, in the young roach among immature forms of red blood cells significantly higher percentage of polychromatophil normoblasts was revealed.
