Abstract: The present study was undertaken to assess the influence of lakes of varied trophic status (Anchar lake and Manasbal lake) on the haematological profile of Schizothorax niger. Various physico-chemical parameters of both the lakes were measured and blood samples of fish were taken to measure haematological indices including Hemoglobin concentration (Hb), Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC), Total Leucocytes Count (TLC), Differential Leucocyte Count (DLC), Hematocrit (Hct), Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin (MCH) and Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC). These parameters were studied for the period of six months (December 2014 to May 2015) on monthly basis at three different sites of each lake. Results showed significant statistical differences in Dissolved oxygen (D.O), Free carbondioxide, Nitrate, Ammonia, Orthophosphate, Total Phosphorus, Hb, Hct and PCV between two different lakes. The present results depicted increased levels of pollutants in water are higher in Anchar lake than in Manasbal lake due to discharge of sewage and other pollutants. Our findings emphasize the fact that haematological indices are important tools to monitor the variation in the trophic status of lakes which is vividly revealed in S.niger in this study. The study recommends that preventive measures need to be taken to protect our waterbodies from discharge of agricultural, industrial and sewage pollutants; their effective treatment and continuous monitoring of point and non-point sources of pollution along their watershed. Proper awareness among the residents living around the banks of these lakes and adequate legislative practices may be implemented to protect these waterbodies from pollution so that not only the fish, but human health is safeguarded as well.
