Pesticides provide useful tools to agriculturists and hygienists for crop protection and disease control. The use of pesticides has undoubtedly increased the agricultural output but on the other hand they have also poisoned the aquatic environment. Persistent of toxic chemicals in aquatic environment becomes dangerous for the survival of fish and their food organism as it is essential to study the toxic effect of pesticides on living organisms for evaluation of its impact on their aquatic environment. Present study indicates that Carbaryl is highly toxic to fish. Carbaryl creates great damage to the gastrointestinal tract and liver which are responsible for the digestion and absorption of the food material already taken in.
