ABSTRACT

In the survey presented, the important role of polluting the hydrosphere with chemical compounds as carcinogens for fishes is elucidated. A substantial role in the forming neoplasia has a type (class) of a provoking aqueous carcinogen, as well as genetic code of the fish. It is noticeable that the hepatic an epidermal neoplasias have become widely distributed in both fresh-water and marine fishes in the last 20 years. Attention is drawn to the need for a complex approach to that problem.
