Title: Haematological and Biochemical Studies of the Healthy and Helminthes infected Rabbit fish, (Siganus rivulatus) in Red Sea Coast – Sudan.
Author: Yagoub, Salah Eldeen
Abstract: This study was conducted at the Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Veterinary medicine, University of Khartoum. Siganus rivulatusfishes were catched for the present study and observed for external parasites and then examinedfor helminth parasites and divided into four groups: Group A control male, Group B helminthes infected male, Group C control female, Group D helminthes infected female. Blood sample were collected after fish catch then subjected to biochemical investigations including haematological estimations, haemoglobin (Hb), Packed cell volume (PCV), erythrocyte and leukocyte count and measurement serum biochemical parameters including total protein, albumin and total globulins also morphometric parameters include length, weight and age weremeasured for each fish. Edible proportion of flesh prepared as dried powder and subject to gross bio chemical composition analysis. The results revealed decrease in packed cell volume (PCV), haemoglobin (Hb) and red blood cells count of helminthes infected groups as compare with control group. There was decreased in plasma total protein value of helminthes infected groups and no change in value of albumin and total globulins in all groups. White blood cells count revealed no significant influences by helminth parasites. Eosinophils showedno response to helminth parasites, neutrophils, lymphocytes and monocytes revealed no significant change except for thrombocytes count was increased through out in the healthy female group. No change in length or weight was recorded in infected groups. xiii Edible proportion of the helminthes infected group’s flesh showed declined in protein% but other biochemical parameters and gross revealed no significant change during the study period
