Abstract


The research comprised 95 individuals Leuciscus cephalus in three different seasons and two different rivers. Analyzed were the hematological parameters in the chub blood samples, and then compared by region and seasons. We analyzed: red cell count, white cell count, hematocrit, hemoglobin, and hematological indices (MCV, MCH and MCHC). Statistical data (Microsoft Excel and SPSS 11.5) showed statistically significant results of the white cell count by region and seasons (0.000), red cell count (0.000), hematocrit (0.00) and hematological indices: MCH (0.000) and MCHC (0.000 ).
