Fish play a significant role in our economy, food chain and serve as an excellent ecological indicator. During the past few decades our knowledge concerning the incident along their mass mortality due to aquatic pollution has increased as these fish play important role of mediator or carrier of toxicant and pathogen leading to gradually an inhibition of their population. The present study is carried out to evaluate the toxic effect of heavy metals Arsenic and Lead on fresh water teleost Clarias batrachus.
