The toxic effect of Monocrotophos on some biochemical parameters such as Protein and Amino acid in freshwater fish Oreochromis mossambicus were studied. The fishes exposed to 1/10th, 1/20th, and 1/30th sublethal concentration of Monocrotophos for 30 days. The tissue samples of gill, liver were analysed at the end of the 30th day exposure period. A decreased value of Protein and Amino acid were observed in 1/10th, 1/20th, and 1/30th sub lethal concentration of Monocrotophos at the exposure period of 30 days while comparing with the control group. The high variation observed in the 1/10th sublethal level of 30thday exposure. While compare with control group the effects of Monocrotophos on fish found during this experiment showed that the level of protein and amino acid level in various tissues (gill and liver) of Oreochromis mossambicus decreased.
