The fishes exposed to 3mg/l (96 h LC50) and 5 mg (96 h LC50) of cadmium chloride for a period of 15 and 45 days. The most common changes in the kidney of fish exposed cadmium chloride were characterized by loosening of haemopoietic tissue, uriniferous tubules have lost their original appearance, vacuolated cytoplasm, degeneration in the epithelial cells of renal tubule, narrowing of the tubular lumen and damaged glomeruli.
