The agriculture pesticides due to its indiscriminate use in field create pollution problems in water bodies. In this present investigation effect of cypermethrin on histophysiology of liver of freshwater fish Ophiocephalus punctatus was studied. The freshwater fish Ophiocephalus punctatus were exposed to sub lethal concentration 0.0007 μ/L of cypermethrin. At different time intervals there was hydropic degeneration in liver. The loosening of tissue, distension of cell, hypertrophy of hepatocytes, significant increase of kupffer cell, pycnotic nuclei, vacuolation of cytoplasm was also observed.
