ESTIMATION OF CHROMIUM CONCENTRATION IN PUNTIUS TETRAZONA (TIGER BARB) FROM MULTAN REGION, PAKISTAN
Heavy metals are the most significant contaminants in an aquatic ecosystem These metals can influence reproduction, growth, weaken the immune system and induce pathological effects. In the area of Multan city, various heavy metals may be present in the water. The use of this water which is supplied to aquarium may affect the growth and weight of Tiger barb (Puntius tetrazona). By analysis of different techniques, it is concluded that “fish size (weight and length) has definite effect on the concentration of Chromium. Condition factor significantly affected the concentration of Chromium in this study. Minimum-Maximum fish body sizes were calculated 3.9-5.3 cm”.
