Abstract

Fish constitutes a cheap source of food and provide good staple food to tide over the nutritional need of human being. Various anthropogenic factors made the fishes more prone for diseases and susceptible for various parasites. So, examine the effect of these parasites on fishes is mandatory to do the effective aquaculture. In the present study attempt has been made to asses the effect of Helminth parasites (Nematode, Cestode, Trematode) on serum protein, serum albumin, serum globulin. The biochemical observation revealed a significant decrease in total serum protein & globulin in serum of blood and a significant increase in albumin in serum of blood of fresh water fish Channa striatus.
