Pesticide, Pyrethroid, SGOT, SGPT, ALP


In the present study, biochemical data has been generated and tested with statistical software. This will highlight the pollutional effects of commonly used pesticides. These pesticides harm the fish health and these fishes finally eaten by human beings and they may get affected by pesticide toxicity. If we assess the harmful effects of pesticide on fish health, we can postulate the harms may be caused in human beings. With this point of view, the effect of cypermethrin is analysed on enzymes using muscle tissue sample of fish Channa punctatus.
