Abstract The genotoxic effects of ethyl methane sulphonate (EMS) have been assessed in a fish, Oreochromis mossambicus with endpoints including chromosome aberrations, abnormal red blood cell nuclei, abnormal sperm morphology, and protein content (both qualitative and quantitative) of selected tissues, namely, muscle, heart, eye, brain, gill, liver, spleen and kidney. EMS caused chromosomal aberrations, nuclear anomalies in red blood cells, abnormal sperm morphology, and alteration of protein synthesis in various tissues. Some of the EMS toxicity appeared to be modulated and ameliorated in this fish by vitamin-C treatment.
