Studies on Changes of Sodium, Potassium and Calcium in Liver of Two Species of Fishes off Jodia Coast in Gulf of Kutch

Authors(1) :-Y. M. Kadiyani

Similar to the variation observed in biochemical parameters variation like sodium, potassium and calcium in liver in both the species was studied, rise and fall level in minerals content in liver organ in both the species was observed in relation to pre spawning, spawning and post spawning period, all these observed decreasing and increasing trends in minerals content in respectively organs have correlation with the gonadial cycle of both the fish.
