The impact of both short term and longterm coke oven effluent released from the Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP) has been studied on Clarias batrachus Linn. (1758) with particular reference to A/Gratio and serum gamma globulin. The model ar.bial was given short term exposure in 30% of coke oven effluent for five days and long term exposure was given for six weeks in 0.5% effluent. The A/G ratio and gamma globulin were determined in serum by standard methods. Experimental findings depicted augmentation in A/G ratio and gamma globulin as a result of short term exposure, whereas long term exposure resulted in significantly high A/G ratio. Significant effect of time and group was confirmed in the gamma globulin concentration. This study reveals negative impact of coke oven effluent, released from the BSP. on local fauna.
