    • Abstract


      Exposure of fishSarotherodon mossambicus (Peters) for 24 h to 80 ppm formalin induced lowering of total erythrocyte count and increase in haemoglobin and haematocrit. Erythrocyte constants and indices of exposed fish were higher than of the control fishes. The sum total of the effect of sublethal concentration of formalin on the peripheral blood ofSarotherodon mossambicus was macrocytosis and hyperchromia.
