Water contamination is a big issue on a global scale. It has been stated that it is the leading cause of death and disease on a global scale, responsible for the deaths of thousands of people every day. Numerous pesticides are also a cause of pollution in agriculture, as they are sprayed on crops to protect them against pests and insects. They have an effect on the soil's structure and fertility. The purpose of this study is to determine the toxicity of the pesticide carbofuran on the fish Channa punctatus. The investigation will be conducted in the kidney and will include histopathological and biochemical examinations. The criteria chosen include urea, uric acid, calcium, potassium, sodium, and creatinine, which can result in catastrophic consequences in many fish diseases. Channa punctatus is a common freshwater fish that was gathered from September to October. It is a robust fish that adapts well to aquarium conditions. Carbofuran is a white, crystalline, powdered insecticide that was used for this study. The elevated serum urea, uric acid, and creatinine concentrations in Channa punctatus at different time intervals of 24, 48, 72, and 96 hours in comparison to the control group reflect compromised kidney functions caused by carbofuran poisoning.
