ABSTRACT

Four groups of one year old Labeo rohita were exposed to 31.37 mgL-1, 20.91 mgL-1, 7.84 mgL-1 and 6.27 mgL-1 of ZnCl2 for 30 days. The peroxidase activity was found to be significantly increased both in liver and kidney after ZnCl2 treatments. Statistically significant increase in the liver and kidney peroxidase activity of 96-h LC50 exposed fish were found as 0.621±0.004UmL-1 and 0.219±0.002UmL-1, respectively as compared to the control fish liver (0.123±0.002UmL-1) and kidney (0.056±0.004UmL-1).
