Abstract

Fish scales are part of the fish's integumentary system, and are produced from the mesoderm layer of the dermis, which distinguishes them from reptile scales. The same gene is involved in tooth and hair development in mammals as involved in scale development. The placoid scales of cartilaginous fishes are also called dermal denticles and are structurally homologous with vertebrate teeth. It has been suggested that the scales of bony fishes are similar in structure to teeth, but they probably originate from different tissue. Most fish are also covered in a protective layer of mucus (slime).In many, scales are reflectors or produce coloration; scales vary in enormously in size, shapes, and structures. The morphology of fish scale can be used to identify the species of the fish. In the present study, characterization of scales has been carried out to understand the constituents in scales of different freshwater fishes

Key Words
