In our study fresh water Mozambique tilapia, live and health were collected from private farm at Nanikakrad, near Navsari in south Gujarat (India). Prawns were acclimatized to laboratory conditions for 24 to 36 hrs prior to experiments. LD was decided and after that M. tilapia were exposed to different doses of 5, 10 and 15 ppm of HgCl2 for 8,16 and 24 days duration. The effect of HgCl2 on protein content of muscle tissue was studied. The results clearly indicated that as duration and dose increased, there was a drastic reducation in protein content of prawn muscle tissue. It was in turn an indication of toxic effect of HgCl2.

Key words :Mercury Chloride, Mozambique tilapia, Protein.
