Abstract

Liza parsia were exposed to HgCl, (acute, 1.0 ppm; sublethal, 0.5 ppm) and DDT (acute, 0.1 ppm) for 15 days. In control mullets, the liver was comprised of polygon,31 hepatocytes with centrally placed nucleus. Exposures to HgC1, and DDT induced dilation of blood sinusoids, vacuolization and granular degeneration of hepatocytes. The complete necrosis of hepatocytes at places (focal necrosis) and fibrosis were noticed on day 15 in the experimental fishes. Blood sinusoids also depicted complete disorganization by close of the experiment.
