Abstract:

Major adverse effects on environmental quality, ecosystem integrity and human health have often been associated with mismanagement of chemical materials and the eliminations of hazardous substances. Heavy metals from geological and anthropogenic sources are increasingly being released into natural waters. Contamination of aquatic ecosystems with heavy metals has seriously increased worldwide attention.  Heavy metals present in effluents discharged by the leather industries constitute the most common group of toxic and non-degradable substances. On reaching the aquatic ecosystem, they pose a serious threat to the biotic living there in especially fish.  Fishes have a great significant in the life of mankind, being a most important source of protein and providing other useful products.   The aim of the present study was to assess the protein and amino acid levels  in brain  and muscle of Channa striatus was exposed to sublethal concentrations of chromium for the period of 10, 20 and 30 days.  The fish exposed to chromium showed a decrease the protein and increase the amino acid levels for 10, 20 and 30 days in brain and muscle.  The objective of the present investigation was to observe the effect of chromium on protein and amino acid levels in the brain and muscle of freshwater fish, Channa striatus.
