Abstract:

The presence of blue-green toxins in surface and running waters used for drinking water source and recreation is receiving increasing attention around the world as a public health concern and fish productivity. However, potential risks from exposure to these toxins in contaminated health food products that contains BGA have been largely ignored, In the present study screening, clear-up, identification, quantitative and qualifitative analysis of microcystin were described. The Oxygen Evolving Bacteria (OEB) Pseudomonas, Oscillatoria rukbescens DC (singly) and Pseudomonas and Oscillatoria rubescens DC (mixed) were utilized for the treatment of running water and also detoxication of Cyanotoxins (MC) level under laboratory conditions. Result obtains are indicative of factors that Pseudomonas and Oscillatoria rubescens DC (mixed) was much better than Pseudomonas, Oscillatoria rubescens DC (singly) for treatment of polluted water in terms of reducing MC level, pH, BOD, Free-CO2 and Sulphate while DO increased. Oscillatoria rukbescesn DC was very useful to reduce the level of N, P and N/P ratio as compare another. The present finding suggest that the detoxications of Microcystin (MC) may reduce 20-55% by mixed form of OEB and successful cultivation of Labeo rohita and Catla catla were also achieved.
