So water pollution is our great discussion which has been reflected on this valuable contribution.

This book presents the results obtained during the investigations of the effects of some heavy metal salts (cupric acetate, zinc acetate, mercuric acetate and lead acetate) on the various blood parameters, viz., erythrocyte (RBC) number, hemoglobin (Hb) content, hematocrit value or PCV, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), total plasma protein content, and serum vitellogenin content of Magur fish (C/arious batrachus L.). It deals with the changes in blood picture of Magur fish on different days after treatment with different doses of those acetate salts.
