Abstract

Effects of copper (Cu) and lead (Pb) applied singly and in mixture with chitosan (CT) on sera aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanin aminotransferase (ALT) activities, glucose, total protein and cholesterol levels of Clarias gariepinus were studied after exposing the animals to 5.0 ppm Cu and 1.0 ppm Pb singly and in mixture with 75 ppm Chitosan over 1, 7 and 15 days. Sera parameters were measured using an auto analyzer and statistical evaluation of the experimental data was carried out by Variance Analysis and Student Newman Keul's Procedure (SNK).
