Fish is widely consumed as one of the main sources of animal food and plays a key role in the ecological processes in aquatic ecosystems. Of particular importance to assess the effects of aquatic pollution on the development and health of fish are organ somatic indices (HSI) and physiological indices (e.g. lipid deposition). Traditional assessment of somatic indices and lipid deposition is invasive and required to sacrifice examined animals. The present study was designed to assess HSI and lipid deposition in intraperitoneal tissues and livers of two fish species using a rapid, accurate and noninvasive magnetic resonance imaging method.
