Pesticides usage in agricultural fields to control pests is extremely toxic to non target organisms like fish and affect fish health through impairment of metabolism, sometimes leading to mortality. Present study is a review of potential adverse effects of pesticides and pollutants in fish. Furthermore, the data generated could be useful in the environmental risk assessment of freshwater and marine organisms.

Ecotoxicology is the study of the effects of toxic chemicals on biological organisms, especially at the population, community, ecosystem, and biosphere levels. Pesticides are agrochemicals that areExpand
Synthetic pyrethroids (Type II) and freshwater fish culture: Perils and mitigations
TLDR
The aim of the present synoptic literature appraisal was to summarize the main effect of current use, type II synthetic pyrethroids (deltamethrin, cypermethrin and fenvalerate) on aquatic environment due to their persistence and accumulation. Expand
Pesticides in aquatic environments and their removal by adsorption methods.
TLDR
Pesticide adsorption onto low-cost materials can effectively remediate contaminated waters and nanoparticle adsorbent and carbon-based adsorbents exhibit high performance in removing pesticides from water bodies. Expand
Ecotoxicology: a review of pesticides induced toxicity in fish.
TLDR
Some major induced toxicological aspects of pesticides in fish including behavioural changes, histopathological damages, haematological alterations, biochemical changes, fluctuations in acetylcholinesterase activity, vicissitudes in protein contents, induced genotoxicity, alterations in feeding biology, oxygen consumption and oxygen stress all across the world are reviewed.

A Review of Heavy Metals Toxicological Studies on Mangur (Clarias batrachus) Fish
Mangur (Clarias batrachus) is an economically important carp. Heavy metal pollutants are accumulating in our aquatic systems due to natural as well as anthropogenic activities. Owing to the processExpand
Tracing the effect of pretilachlor on Channa punctatus (Bloch)
Pesticides usage is increasing worldwide with the increase in human population. These pesticides are mostly with long half life for better efficiency. Most of the pesticides are drained to the nearbyExpand
A Study on Oxygen Consumption in a Freshwater Fish Cyprinus carpio Exposed to Lethal and Sublethal Concentrations of Cypermethrin (25%Ec)
Any alteration in fish physiology indicates the deterioration of water quality parameters, since fish are one of the biological indicators of water quality. The recent development of biomarkers basedExpand
Methods for environmental monitoring of pesticide exposure
Abstract Environmental monitoring of pesticide exposure is a key element of the holistic study of pesticides’ effects in human and animal health and the environment. The purpose of the currentExpand

Acute toxicity bioassay of dimethoate on freshwater airbreathing catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch).
TLDR
At higher concentration of dimethoate the fish showed uncoordinated behaviour such as erratic and jerky swimming, attempt to jump out of water, frequent surfacing and gulping of air, decrease in opercular movement and copious secretion of mucus all over the body. Expand
