Chronic toxicity of dairy effluent on biochemical constituents of fish, Blue gourami (Trichogaster trichopterus)

Authors(2) :-S. Nishra Banu, C.M. Noorjahan

Water is one of the most important requirements of all living beings for performing essential life functions and is considered as a precious natural resources.Industrial waste has been increased tremendously. The dairy industry is an important food industry which presents materially to fluid wastes. Hence an investigation had been carried out to estimate biochemical constituents present in different organs of fish, blue gourami (Trichogastertrichopterus). The result of impact of industry treated dairy effluent on biochemical constituents present in different organs such as gills, liver and muscle of fish, blue gourami revealed that gills was the most affected organ which showed decreased amount of biochemical constituents than that of liver and muscle of fish and among the biochemical constituents, carbohydrates was decreased drastically than lipid and proteins.
