Abstract

The current study performed the examine the alterations induced by chronic (30 days) exposure of the fish Heteropneutes fossilis to a sublethal concentrations (0.25 ppm conc.) of mercuric chloride on the profile of total blood metabolites. The experimental fish become hyperglyceric as evident by a highly significant (p < 0.001) elevated level of glucose in the blood, which counts to an increase of 28.53% and the serum cholesterol has been found to significantly increase by 13.07% showed hypercholestrolemic response as evident by significant (p< 0.05) increase while protein level depleted 37.93%. The present study therefore points towards a severe metabolic dysfunction in response to mercuric chloride toxicity in the fish Heteropneutes fossilis (Bloch.).

Key Words

Heteropneutes fossilis, Mercuric chloride , blood metabolites, total serum protein.
