Experimental Study on Acute Exposure of Pyrazosulfuron Ethyl Induced Haematological and Blood Biochemical Changes in the Freshwater Teleost Fish Oreochromis mossambicus

The buildup of agriculture pesticides in the aquatic habitat through natural run-off is a major problem

faced by developing and developed countries. The present study was designed to evaluate the 96 hr

LC50 of herbicide, Pyrazosulfuron-Ethyl, which belongs to the Sulfonylurea group. Static bioassay with

continuous aeration under laboratory conditions, acute toxicity of the herbicide was determined for

freshwater fish Oreochromis mossambicus. Health indicators like hematological and biochemical

parameters are used to detect the functional status of fish under acute exposure. Moreover,

biochemical parameters like plasma glucose, protein, albumin and globulin were also studied to

evaluate the toxic potential of the herbicide. Results revealed that the herbicide led to significant

changes in the hematological parameters such as RBC count, Hb, PCV, MCH, MCHC, MCV and

WBC count and biochemical parameters. These alterations can be used as non-specific biomarkers in

herbicide contaminated aquatic ecosystems.
