A STUDY ON THE EFFECT OF DETERGENT SURYAGOLD ON THE BIOCHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS OF THE FRESH WATER FISH CIRRHINUS MRIGALAJ. VASANTHI*, R. KALAVATHI AND N. SARADHAMANI
To get an idea about the nature of effect of detergent suryagold on the biochemical aspects of aquatic organisms, fishes belonging to the species Cirrhinus mrigala were exposed to sublethal concenteration of 3.5 mg/L (1/10th of LC50 value of 24 hrs ) for short term duration (24hrs, 48hrs and 72 hrs). Biochemical characteristics like glycogen, protein and cholesterol were estimated in liver, kidney, gills and muscles. The glycogen and cholesterol content was found to increase in all tissues in different hours of exposure but the protein content was found to decrease from the control. The results are statistically analysed and most values were found to be non significant.
