ABSTRACT

 

The present investigation deals with the study of effect of fungicide, Indofil on the freshwater teleost fish, Channa punctatus (Bloch.) to study the effect of the sub-lethal concentration of Indofil on certain haematological parameter i.e.; MCHC (Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin Concentration). Indofil is a carbamate fungicide and its LC50 has been calculated by the log-dose/Probit regression line method (Finney, 1971) and was recorded as 10.96 ppm. Sub-lethal concentration (8ppm) of Indofil was given to four experimental groups for 24, 48, 72 and 96 hrs. Indofil showed a non significant to very highly significant decrease in MCHC.
