The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of pesticide Dimethoate 30% EC of the fresh water fish, Labeo rohita for 24, 48 and 72 hours respectively. The 10 healthy fishes were exposed to different concentration of pesticide to calculate the LC50 value. The LC50 value is 0.398 ppm. Compared with the control group, a significant decrease of carbohydrate was ascertained in the experimental group.The above results of examinations of the carbohydrate content indicate a marked neurotoxic effect of Dimethoate in fishes.
