Abstract : Indirect and continuous entry of carbamate (organophosphate) pesticide in the system of Cirrhinus mrigala amounts to acute toxicity that hamper the normal profile of haematological counts of the fish. The present article deals with the impact of acute carbamate toxicity especially on the RBC counts & haemoglobin quantitative composition in the experimentally treated female fishes with two concentrations variants (0.47%& 0.94% v/v) for five different durations of exposure. Statistically significant findings have been found on the gradually depleting standard values of the blood parameters considered. The result has been discussed in the light of clinical symptoms of anemia in the female fishes which are responsible for egg production & carrying out future generation of its race. Additionally these fishes also have edible value, so the anemic individuals may not be good for food from nutritional aspect.
