Acute Exposure to the Neonicotinoid Insecticide Imidacloprid of Zebrafish (Danio rerio) Gonads: A Histopathological Approach
Depending on the increase in agricultural production, the use of pesticides has also increased worldwide. Imidacloprid is a neonicotinoid pesticide and one of the most widely used in the world. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the histopathological changes in zebrafish ovary and testis tissue caused by imidacloprid, which pollutes the aquatic ecosystem in various ways. It has been shown that imidacloprid causes histopathological changes in the gonads by causing deterioration in the structure of reproductive cells.
