Chlorpyrifos is an organophosphorous insecticide widely used in agriculture and domestic activities. However, little is known about the effect of this pesticide on the immune system of fish and other alterations of its physiological system. The aims of the present study were the evaluation of the LC(50) (lethal concentration(50)) and the potential toxicity of this substance on Nile tilapia (Oreochromis nilotucus), as well as its effect on some hematological values and phagocytic functions of… CONTINUE READING
