Abstract:

The histopathological study of the effects of lethal concentration (10, 8, 4, 2 and 0%, respectively) of Oil-Based Mud (OBM) on the fingerlings of the amphibious fish of the Niger Delta, Periophthalmus barbarus were exposed for 96 h using static bioassay. Histological study of liver, kidney, muscle, intestine, brain and gills were the tissue parameters investigated. Samples of tissues were preserved in formaldehydes for histological studies. Result revealed noticeable changes in tissues that ranged from mild to severe damage. Normal situation was observed in all the examined tissues of fish from the control (0%) tanks. The oil-based mud was toxic to the tissues examined.
