Biochemical changes in Air-breathing fish, Anabas testudineus (Bloch) exposed to the Pesticide Rogor (Dimethoate)
Abstract: In this paper the study has been designed to determine the LC50 values of Rogor an insecticide and relative behavioral changes in fresh water fish Anabas testudineus (Bloch) exposed for 24, 48, 72 and 96 hrs. The LC50 values for Anabas testudineus were found at 9ppm, 8.31ppm, 7.8ppm and 7.1ppm respectively. Fish show increased opercular moment, loss of equilibrium, increased surface activity, over secretion of mucous, irregular swimming activity, rapid jerky movements and aggressiveness were observed.
