Abstract

Malathion is the important pesticide used in Indian conditions. This pesticide in turn through rain wash goes to water ecosystem and affects aquatic fauna especially fishes. Indian carps are major source of food in most of the population. It is necessary to study the toxicity standards and bioassay in Indian major carps under stress of malathion.
