    Abstract

    Application of histologic and histochemical techniques to the determination of effects of aquatic pollutants upon fish tissues is discussed. Definition of terms and techniques associated with appropriate preparation of tissue specimens are given. Illustrations include examples from control and altered tissues. A summary of our work with methyl mercuric chloride in channel catfish illustrates the use of both techniques in assessing the prognosis of the effects of aquatic pollutants upon fish tissues.
