Effect of Chlorpyrifos on Some Biochemical Constituents in Liver and Kidney of Fresh Water Fish,Channa Gachua (F.Hamilton)
Padmini Kadam, Rajaram Patil
Abstract: Pesticides are most hazardous to human and ambient. These pesticides are used extensively to protect agricultural crops against the damage caused by various kinds of pests. However these chemicals may reach non targeted ecosystems like lakes and rivers through rain and wind, affecting many other organisms. Biochemical variables show specific responses to certain types of environmental stress. The approach of present work was to evaluate toxic effects of an insecticide, chlorpyrifos on biochemical constituents like protein, glycogen and lipid in liver and kidney of freshwater fish, Channa gachua. The biochemical constituents under present study were found to be decreased in both the tissues in comparison with control. So, the result of present study indicates the toxic nature of the insecticide chlorpyrifos.
