Studies on sublethal concentration of Carbofuran (a carbamate pesticde) and Ekalux EC 25 (an organophosphate pesticide) on changes in some haemato-biochemical parameters in an air breathing fish, Channa striatus (Bloch) were made. In control group of fishes, the values of blood glucose, plasma protein and blood urea were 68.92±1.23; 4.92±0.36 and 29.32±1.3 mg/100m1 of blood respectively. The exposure of fishes to sublethal concentrations of both the pesticides for 96 hrs caused significant increase in blood glucose and blood urea but significant decrease in plasma protein. The reason for such changes has been discussed in this paper
The genus Krimi was established by Burt in 1944 with its type species K. chrysocolaptis,from Chrysocolaptis guttacristatus stricklandi,in Ceylon. Nine specimens of Cestode parasites were collected from the intestine of Gallus gallus domesticus. The present cestode have 55-60 number of strobilla; scolex large, rectangular in shape;rostellar sac large, extends up to the middle of the scolex; 18rostellarhooks; testes 25 to 30in numbers; cirrus pouch medium, oval; ovary is bilobed,each lobe with 7-8 acini;ootype small, oval; gravid proglottids large, broaderthan long.
