Necropsy and Liver Histopathology for Fish Sampled at the Control Station in Maunalua Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, October-November 1997
James A. Brock
Fish liver histopathology is an important biological tool used to assess fish for exposure to pollution. In 1997 gross necropsy and fish liver histopathology were conducted on 10 specimens each of three different fish species: Selar crumenophthalmus, Lutjanus kasmira, and Myripristis spp. collected live at the control station in Maunalua Bay, Oahu, Hawaii. Gross or microscopic evidence of neoplasia was not found in the liver of the 30 fish evaluated.
