Abstract: This present study would form a baseline data for assessment of health status of the fish as well as reference point for future comparative study of enumeration of W.B.C. in the blood of fishes from Ana Sager and Foy Sager reservoir of Ajmer. Experimental material incorporated Indian major carps i.e. Rohu (Labeo rohita) and Catla (Catla catla). A total of 240 fish were incorporated in the study. Out of this, 120 fish type were Labeo rohita (Lr) and 120 fish type were Catla (Cc). The mean values of WBC number from each site revealed significant differences (p≤0.05) among themselves. Fish collected from Ana Sager site 4 revealed significantly (p≤0.05) highest values of WBC number as compared to rest of the other sites. This revealed that maximum stress was developed in the fish collected from Ana Sager site 4. Higher WBC number is an indicative of infection. This site was having maximum pollution as indicated by the water quality parameters.
