Effect of an insecticide (Monocrotophos) on some biochemical constituents of the fish Tilapia Mossambica

The effects of an insecticide monocrotophos on some biochemical parameters of the fish, Tilapia mossambica at 24, 48, 72 and 96 hrs of exposures were studied. Median lethal concentration of monocrotophos to the fish for 24 hour exposure was determined during bioassay study. The protein contents were found to be declined in all the samples analyzed during all the exposure periods.
