The aim of the present study was to investigate and establish reference ranges for haematological values for Bagrid catfish (Chrysichthys nigrodigitatus) from Asejire Dam in Southwestern Nigeria and compared it with that of the African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) from the same dam. In the present work hematologic indices (RBC, WBC, Ht, Hb, MCV, MCH, MCHC), were determined using standard methods. The mean ± SEM and range were established. RBC, Hb, lymphocyte and MCV differs significantly
