Enzyme and Tissue Alterations in Fishes: A Measure of Water Quality

David E. Hinton, M. W. Kendall & J. C. Koenig
Abstract: A variety of freshwater fishes were studied by light and electron microscopy, enzyme histochemical and biochemical methods, The objective was to determine normal structure and function in specific target organs and to compare these to altered states in aquatic pollution. The basic question, "can fish tissues and enzymes serve as indicators of water quality?," was asked. Microscopic alteration in gill was indicative of copper toxicity at an exposure of 20 parts per billion, Gross...
