The purpose of research was to diagnose morphological anomalies in the axial skeleton of juvenile fish from water bodies within Chornobyl Exclusion Zone (CEZ). The Rhodeus amarus, Leucaspius delineates, Rutilus rutilus and Scardinius erythrophthalmus were studied. The total dose rate for studied fish species from CEZ was registered in range 17.4-58.6 and from reference lakes was about 0.06 μGy/h. Bone tissues of fish were stained by T. P
