HISTOPATHOLOGICAL EFFECT OF PESTICIDE PROFENOFOS ON THE SKIN OF AIR BREATHING TELEOST Channa gachua
UTTAR PRADESH JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY,
The effect of pesticide profenofos (organophosphate), on the skin of air breathing fish Channa gachua were studied. The histopathological alteration in the skin have been observed in Laboratory Condition after exposing to sub-lethal concentration of Profenofos (0.06 ppm) during different time period (10 days, 15 days and 20 days). The gross pathological changes after profenofos exposed includes:- The epithelial cells start separating, dermal tissues disorganised. The thickness of skin decreased, reduction in number and size of epidermal cells also occur. On the basis of the above finding it is concluded that widely used profenofos in agriculture has produced significant effects on skin of air breathing fish Channa gachua.
