Abstract:

The rohu, Labio rohita, is an important freshwater fish. The rohu occurs throughout in South Asia and is an important aquaculture freshwater species. Rohu is one of the major carp, being cultivated in small aquatic water bodies as well as in artificial tanks in rural parts of Jabalpur. On the other hand, profenofos, an organophosphate insecticide, is being used on a variety of crops including wheat, cotton, maize, potato, soybean, and sugar beet. It is primarily used against lepidopteran insects as well as against wheat and cabbage aphids. Extensive use of this pesticide has increased its content in the soil and also in aquatic bodies in rural areas of India. The present study is focused on lethal effects of profenofos on rohu fish, being cultivated in and around Jabalpur and changes thereof in the fish hematology. The in vitro study will come up with knowledge of toxic values of the pesticide and will help the fish cultivators of the rural area of Jabalpur.
