Toxic effects of heavy metal chromium is a matter of worldwide concern in the edible fishes. Present study was aimed to monitor the chromium induced toxicity in freshwater snake headed fish Channa punctatus. To investigate the impact of chromium toxicity on the exposed fish, Channa punctatus, haematological profile of both control and experimental group of fish was done. A sublethal dose (1/10 concentration of 96 hr 10 LC50) of the chromium trioxide were given for 45 days. Fish were fed on commercial feed at the rate of 3% body weight. With help of heparinized needle blood sample was collected from the caudal vein of both control as well as experimental fish. Haemoglobin%, haematocrit (PCV%), RBC and WBC count were made. Significant alterations was observed only after 45 days of exposure periods.
