Channa punctatus, fish were exposed to sub lethal concentrations of carbofuran (0.1ml) and malathion (0.09ml) for 28 days. The biochemical effect induced by carbofuran and malathionpesticides on liver of fish, Channa punctatus (Bloch.) at different time intervals 7,14,21 and 28 days showed statistically significant increase value in liver glucose and significant decrease value in total protein level.
