Abstract : Stinging catfish Heteropneustes fossilis exposed to different concentrations of an organochlorine pesticide endosulfan under static conditions, revealed statistically significant increase in cholesterol contents of liver, brain and gill tissues even at the lowest concentration (0.0010 mg/l). Fish also elicited behavioral changes due to pesticide toxi City. Hypercholesterolemia appeared to be due to stress induced metabolic alterations caused by intoxication.

Keywords : Endosulfan, Toxi City, Hypercholesterolemia, Behavioral alterations
