ABSTRACT
The effect of hypoxia on the level of carbohydrate metabolites glycogen and glucose were studied in brain, muscles and liver of snakehead fish, Channa striatus. Hypoxia exposure decreased the glycogen level in brain and muscles of female fishes but increased in male fishes. Hypoxia exposure increased glucose level in brain and muscles of female fishes but decreased in male fishes. The level of glycogen and glucose in liver decreased in both male and female fishes during hypoxia. In the present study, the haematological data of Channa striatus revealed that significant increase (P<0.05 and Â0.01) was observed in red blood cell count (RBC) and hemoglobin (Hb) content respectively. White blood cell (WBC) count showed significant (P<0.01) increase when compared to the control. Increase in haematological indices means that fish was exposed to hypoxia and was under stress.

Key words : Carbohydrate metabolites, Haematologyical indices, Hypoxia, Stress.
