ABSTRACT
The effect of pesticides on phosphatase activity is very much limited in fishes. Acid and alkaline phosphatases are known as inducible enzymes whose activity in animal tissues goes up when there is a toxic impact and the enzymes begin to counteract. The enzymes activity may begin to drop either as a result of having partly or fully countered the toxin and cells also damaged. Alkaline phosphatase activity was found in the gills decreased in experimental fishes, but in control fishes, its value was maximum. Enzymes activities were reduced. Detailed results are summarized in the present paper.

Key words :Alkaline phosphatase,Dimethoate, Freshwater fish Catla catla.
