The P. volitans generally is an edible fish, it protein are considered to be a source of food for human and the venom use for the development of new drugs. Pharmacological character of its venom were characterised during the study period. The lionfish venom shows the neuroprotective efficacy in alcohol intoxicated albino rat brain. These findings are further confirmed by histopathological observations. Therefore, the lionfish venom could be used as a neuroprotective agent.
