Impact of industrial wastewaters on the fish Poecilia reticulate: Integrating wastewater toxicity with ecological safety
Author(s): Rajeev Pandey, Manikant Tripathi and Jaswant Singh
Abstract: Wastewater disposal from various sources are polluting the environment and disturbing our ecosystem at various levels. Industries are of special concerns due their effluent containing various contaminants which may have deleterious impact on environmental health. Concerning to current industrial pollution problem, the effect of industrial wastewater from Poolpur and Naini on different ecotoxicological parameters of selected fresh water fish Guppy spp Poecila reticulata was studied in laboratory conditions up to 96 hours. The increase space between gills and operculum, excessive excretion as well as increase surface activity were found in wastewater exposed fishes in comparison to control. The overall findings of the study indicates that industrial wastewaters are safe for crop irrigation but may have some negative impact on environment as on the basis of behavioural changes in effluent exposed fishes.
