Abstract

In the present study haematological parameters of control and sodium arsenate affected Clarias batrachus were observed, and provided an experimental view on arsenic contaminant. The action of sodium arsenate on experimental animal is well known and several studies have shown that chronic exposure to low levels of arsenic can also cause anaemia. The result of present study indicate that the RBC, Hb, Platelets, PCV, MCV and MCH value were decreased, fluctuation in differential leucocytes count and increased in the number of WBC due to exposure of sodium arsenate.
