The serum biochemical parameters such as protein, glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides have been studied in four fresh water Indian carps collected from a local aquatic body to assess the normal levels of these blood parameters in comparison to the other fresh water fishes reported, so as to find out their health condition and survival in a particular aquatic body. It is reported that the assessment of health condition can be determined based on the blood biochemical parameters and it is well known that certain blood parameters serve as reliable indicators of fish health. The results of the above serum parameters in all the four carp fishes carried out in the present study found to be under normal ranges for protein (2.90-3.59g/dl), glucose (18.00 -29.01mg/dl), cholesterol (202.16-272mg/dl), triglyceride (259.00 -336.83mg/dl) compared to as reported in other fresh water fishes and can be suggested that the fishes inhabiting in the aquatic body are healthy and the environmental conditions are favourable for their survival.
