    Hematological and Histological Studies to Determine the Toxicity of Profenofos on Oreochromis niloticus (Genetically Improved)
    Author(s): Dayananda NG* and Surendran SN

    The extensive use of pesticides in modern agriculture can cause severe consequences because of their bio magnification and persistence. This research was designed to study the toxicity of profenofos on the genetically improved strain of farmed tilapia (Oreochromis nilotic). The LC50 value of Profenofos for fingerlings with 2 g ± 0.5 g average weight and 6 cm ± 0.5 cm average lengths was determined by probit analysis using MS excel 2013 software. Sub adults with 14.0 cm ± 0.5 cm average length and 71.0 g ± 0.5 g average weight were stocked and exposed to different concentrations of Profenofos ranging from 0 to 0.15 mg L-1 for four weeks and accessed the hematological parameters. The sub adults were exposed to different concentrations of Profenofos ranging from 0 to 0.26 mg L-1 for a week, and his.. View More»
