Action of monocrotophos on the muscle tissue of <em>Penaeus monodon</em>

Author(s):

Dr. A Bharathi

Abstract:
Monocrotophos is an organophosphorous insecticide widely used in the field of agriculture. The aim of the study is to prove the impact of the monocrotophos in relation to the alteration in cholesterol content in the muscle of the male and female <em>Penaeus monodon</em>. The prawns were exposed to lower (0.002ppm) and higher (0.003ppm) sub lethal concentration of monocrotophos for the experimental periods 5, 10 and 15 days. The muscle tissues were taken for the analysis of cholesterol content. The current study proves that monocrotophos causes imbalances in the cholesterol content in the muscle of male and female <em>Penaeus monodon</em>.
