Abstract

Βeta-cyfluthrin, a type II synthetic pyrethroid, based pesticides are routinely used to manage a large variety of unwanted insects in both agriculture and household. It has very moderate toxicity for mammals, but significant toxicity for fish and other non-target species. Effect of this toxicant was observed regarding a few biochemical markers of Channa punctatus. Alterations in biochemical parameters were recorded after exposure to a sublethal concentration of beta-cyfluthrin for a period of 15 and 30 days. The results showed a significant decrease in total proteins and alkaline phosphatase and increase in total lipids in exposed groups. The results indicated that beta-cyfluthrin caused significant changes in biochemical parameters of fish
