Endoslulfan induced alterations in the alkaline and acid phosphatase activities were studied in the liver and muscle in the catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis. The fish, exposed to different graded concentrations of endosulfan for 5 and 30 days revealed inhibition in the activity of alkaline phosphatase activity in both the tissues. Acid phosphatase activity increased in liver on exposure for 5 days but declined on prolonged exposure for 30 days. The muscle, acid phosphatase activity was inhibited both after 5 and 30 days of exposure.
Key words: Endosulfan. Liver, muscles, heteropneustes.
