    • Abstract


      Studies were conducted on the electrophoresis of blood serum and eye lens proteins of 5 fishes and immunoelectrophoresis of the soluble lens proteins of 10 fishes. The effects of a toxic pollutant (mercury) on the electrophoretic patterns of the serum, haemoglobin and eye lens proteins of a euryhaline fishTilapia mossambica (Peters) has also been studied. The use of fish blood morphology as a biological index of water quality has been indicated.
