Abstract

The present study was carried out to investigate Mercury induced Oxygen Consumption in a freshwater bivalve Lamellidens marginalis, a sentinel species in aquatic environment. The bivalves were exposed to acute dose of heavy metal, Mercury chloride. Oxygen Consumption rate for acute treatment was recorded in groups Lc0 and Lc50 concentration for 96 hour. All results were compared with control groups of respective treatment. Our results showed that oxygen consumption rate was found to decrease with increased concentration of mercury and exposure period.

Key Words

Oxygen consumption rate; Mercury chloride; Lamellidens marginalis, Acute toxicity.
