Effect of Malathion on RBC's And WBC's of Labeo Rohita

Authors(1) :-R. S. Magar

Indiscriminate use of pesticides has elevated the risk of contamination of environment and aquatic habitat. Considering above fact, the present investigation was carried out to study the impact of sublethal concentration of malathion exposed after 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours on RBC’s and WBC’s of Labeo rohita. The blood analysis showed significant decrease in RBC’s and WBC’s content of treated group compared with control.
