Freshwater bivalves Lamellidens marginalis were exposed to acute cadmium chloride for 96 hrs. After 96 hours of acute treatment the different body parts; mantle, gill, gonad, hepatopancreas, siphon, foot, anterior adductor muscle and posterior adductor muscle of the bivalves were separated, dried in the oven and their lipid contents were estimated. The data of the present findings suggest that there was an adverse toxic effect of cadmium chloride on the bivalve Lamellidens marginalis. After acute exposure to cadmium chloride, lipid content of mantle, gill, gonad, hepatopancreas, siphon, foot, anterior adductor muscle and posterior adductor muscle was found altered. In acute exposure of cadmium chloride the average lipid content was changed significantly.
