Abstract

The present study deals with the haematological changes such as Total Erythrocyte Count, Total Leucocyte Count, Hb percentage, PCV, MCV, MCH and Differential Leucocyte Count that occurred due to the exposure of fish, Channa punctatus to the Rayon Industrial Effluents. Neutrophils, Eosinophils, Monocytes and Small Lymphocytes are decreased in the treated fish than the control fish. While MCHC, Basophils, Large Lymphocytes are increased in the treated fish. The Rayon effluents cause lymphocytosis and Macrocytic Anaemia in the fish, Channa punctatus.
