Scholarcy highlights

  • To investigate the effect of waterborne manganese on plasma biochemical characteristics in fish, Caspian roach was exposed to 0, 60, 150 and 300 mg/L water manganese for 96 h
  • Plasma glucose level significantly increased in M60 and decreased in M150 and M300 groups, compared to the control
  • M300 had significantly lower hematocrit compared to the control
  • Albumin remained unchanged after manganese exposure, the manganese-exposed fish showed significant increase in plasma total protein levels
  • M150 and M300 showed significant increase in the plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to the control and M60
  • M60 and M150 had significantly lower plasma calcium levels compared to the other groups
  • The possible mechanisms involving in the biochemical changes were discussed
