ABSTRACT

Fish are important source for human consumption. Indiscriminate use of pesticides to protect crops possess a severe threat to the aquatic
organisms. When Channa punctatus is exposed to an organo-phosphorous insecticide, chloropyriphos exhibited notable alterations in protein
levels of muscle, liver and kidney. The decrease may be due to breakdown of proteins under toxic stress.

Keywords: Channa punctatus, pesticide, toxic stress, protein.
