A Comparative Assessment of Genotoxicity in the Peripheral Erythrocytes of Two Fish Species, Labeo catla and Labeo rohita Hamilton after Pre- and Post-Immersion of Idol in Pond of Hooghly Area, West Bengal

Abstract: The present study was detected the genotoxic effect with special reference to micronucleation (MN) and abnormal nucleation (NA) in the peripheral erythrocytes of two edible fish species (Labeo catla and Labeo rohita Hamilton) collected from the pond of Hooghly area, West Bengal after pre and post immersion of idol. The specimens were collected in the designated ponds for the assessment for MN and NA after visualizing under brightfield binocular microscope. Regarding genotoxic effect, micronuclei, binuclei, retracted nucleus, notch nuclei, blebbed nucleus and vacuolated cytoplasm were significantly (P<0.001) induced in group B (post-immersion of idol) when compared to group A (pre-immersion of idol) in the peripheral erythrocytes of studied fish specimens. It is concluded that idol immersion led to genotoxicity in the studied fish specimens may be due to heavy metals exposure. Future study is suggested to estimate the content of inorganic Pb in the water, sediment and muscle of studied fish specimens.
