Abstract

This study was designed to investigate changes in the blood parameters of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum) immediately after physical pollution caused by flooding via mud and clay. Levels of hemoglobin, hematocrit, triglyceride, cholesterol and bicarbonate in blood after flooding were significantly less than before flooding. Erythrocyte count, serum alkaline phosphatase, glutamate oxalacetate transaminase, glutamate pyruvate transaminase, glucose, total protein, albumin, total billrubin, direct billrubin, phosphorus, carbon dioxide pressure, arterial CO2 tension values of fish after flooding were significantly greater than that of fish before flooding.
