The Effects of Sub-lethal Doses of Lambda-cyhalothrin on Some Biochemical Characteristics of the African Catfish Clarias gariepinus

E. Ogueji Okechukwu and J. Auta    

Abstract: The impact of long-term exposure to waterborne lambda-cyhalothrin on Clarias gariepinus was evaluated through changes of selected biochemical parameters. Fish was exposed to 0.0004, 0.0008 and 0.0016 mg L-1 for 8 weeks. The parameters measured were serum glucose, protein, cholesterol, triglyceride, glutamic pyruvic acid transaminase (GPT), Glutamic Oxaloacetic acid Transaminase (GOT) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP).There was significant (p< 0.05) alterations between the control values and the exposed groups on all parameters except GOT. The alterations in all parameters was significantly (p< 0.05) dose and time dependent.
