Abstract : Three groups of Cirrhina mrigala (one year old) were exposed, separately, to sub-lethal concentrations (96-hr LC50, 2/3rd of LC50, 1/4th of LC50 and 1/5th of LC50) of ZnCl2 in glass aquaria along with the control group. After 30 days exposure, the fish were sacrificed and peroxidase activity in liver and kidney were determined. The peroxidase activity in both organs of ZnCl2 exposed fish were compared with control. The physico-chemical parameters of the experimental media viz. pH, dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide, total hardness, calcium, magnesium and total ammonia were also monitored twice a day. The results showed that the peroxidase activity was significantly increased in both the organs as a result of ZnCl2 exposure in all the treatments than control. The peroxidase activities in all treated and control fish groups were found lower in kidney than in the liver.
