Influence of Acanthocephala parasite on haematological changes in  Labeo rohita (Hamilton,1822)  of  Veeranna Cheruvu, Hasnapur, Mahabubnagar District, Telangana State, India

Authors(2) :-C. Nagaraju, A. V. Rajashekhar

Haematological parameters are repeatedly use as an essential tool to assess the health condition of Indian major carp fish. Although fish haemtology continues to offer the potential of a valuable tool in establishing normal range values for blood parameters has been low and available research information is isolated, old and often incomplete. The purpose of this study was to assess the reference values of some haematological parameters carried out Acanthocephala infestations either single or mixed of Indian major carps viz. Labeo rohita which are collected from freshwater Veeranna cheruvu, Hasnapur in mahabubnagar district of telangana from 2012-2013,2013-2014. Variation observed in haematological parameters such as RBC, Hb, MCH, MCV, PCV, WBC, Eosinophils , Basophils, Neutrophils and Lymphosite and compared with the earlier reference values. A continues assessment is essential for establishing the reference values in the field of heamatological research based on the area of the study nature of waterbody and time duration.
