ABSTRACT
The study of biological indicator organism is more important than analyzing water or sediments for monitoring heavy metal pollution in the aquatic environment .Non-essential elements enter the animals and accumulate to the different organs so that chelating agents are most versatile and effective antidotes to eliminate the metals toxicities. The aim of our present study is to finds out bioaccumulations of aluminum and the effects of chelating agents DFO and DFP in Muscle, kidney and liver tissues of Cirrhinus mrigala by using Inductively Coupled Atomic Emission Spectrometer (ICP-AES). This study finds out the accumulation of aluminum is Muscle>Kidney>Liver. The present result suggests that DFO and DFP reduce the aluminum concentration in the tissues of Cirrhinus mrigala fingerlings and both are efficient chelator. Aluminum toxicity is a wide spread problem in all forms of life, including humans, animals, fishes, plants, and cause wide spread degradation of the environment and health.
