|Author(s)||Priti Singh, Dr. Leena Muralidharan|
|Abstract||The discharge of heavy metals from industrial effluents into aquatic ecosystems is a major cause of serious aquatic pollution. The bioaccumulation of toxic heavy metals in aquatic species can lead to their transmission to the food chain, posing serious public health risks. Present study was done to assess heavy metal accumulation and histopathological analysis in the liver of Sardinella longiceps collected from Sassoon dock during the rainy season between 2019 to 2022. It was found that amongst studied heavy metals Cu, Cr, and Mn concentration was beyond the permissible limit of WHO and FAO guidelines. Histopathological analysis of liver tissues during the studied period showed various architectural alteration which could be due to the accumulation of heavy metals found in it.|
