SUBLETHAL EFFECT OF SUGAR FACTORY EFFLUENT ON FOOD CONSUMPTION AND GROWTH OF FRESHWATER FISH, RASBORA DANICONIUSV. B. KAKADE, Y. K. KHILLARE, J.P. SARAWADE AND T.S. PATHAN
The effect of Sublethal concentrations 2.2% (1/5) and 1.1% (1/10) of the Sugar Factory effluent on food consumption and growth of the fish, Rasbora daniconius were studied in the laboratory for 4 week. It was observed that the control fish showed normal food intake and growth. The food intake and growth reduced in fishes exposed to sublethal concentrations of Sugar Factory effluent as compared to control. The study shows that sugar factory effluent brings out various physiology disorders in the fish, Rasbora daniconius. Thus, the release of this effluent around water bodies should be monitored and controlled.
