Induja Mishra*, B. D. Joshi and Namita Joshi Department of Zoology and  Environmental Sciences, Gurukula Kangri University, Haridwar, India*Email-89induja@gmail.comReceived: 01-12-2018 Accepted: 10-12-2018 AbstractThis study reveals sex related variations in the Indian catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis. The haematological parameters include total erythrocyte count (TEC), total leucocyte count (TLC), haemoglobin (Hb), packed cell volume (PCV), red cell indices (MCH, MCHC, MCV), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), glucose, differential leukocyte count (DLC) and Differential erythrocyte count (DEC). It was observed that the values of the total erythrocyte count (TEC), Read More …
