The present exploration was designed to study the effect of sublethal concentrations of monocrotophos on the serum biochemical parameters of Cirrhinus mrigala after exposure to 96 hours. The result of study shows that serum biomolecules such as glucose, protein, triglyceride, cholesterol, urea, bilirubin, SGOT and SGPT were significantly altered in monocrotophos exposed fish. The response of the fish towards toxicity of monocrotophos was grossly dependent on the duration of exposure. Thus, this paper gives an overview of the manipulation of fish, Cirrhinus mrigala as a biomarker of pesticides through alternation in behavior and biochemical parameters.
