Toxicity of an insecticide Confidor on protein content of liver and gonads of freshwater fish, Channa gachua were studied during 24,48,72 and 96hrs in laboratory condition. Physicochemical parameters like, pH, temperature, O2 and Co2 content, alkalinity, and total hardness were assessed. LC50 value of confidor to Channa gachua was calculated for 96hrs, it was 0.9ppm. The animals were exposed to lethal concentration for acute period. Then control as well as experimental fishes were sacrificed and then liver and gonad were separated for biochemical analysis. Protein content of liver and gonad was found to be decreased after acute exposure to an insecticide confidor.
