Abstract Fish include many different species, having a large economic and environmental impact. Glucose is a key source of energy for most vertebrate organisms. Fish as well as mammals maintain a specific level of blood sugar. glycaemia, which is influenced by multiple factors such as hormone production, diet and temperature. Therefore, it is a useful indicator for scientists who need to check the immediate state of an organism. Samples of blood and gills, kidneys, and liver tissues were assayed for biochemical measurements. Fish exposed to CPF exhibited significant (p. 0.05) increments of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), cholesterol, urea, creatinine, and malondialdehyde (MDA), while significantly decreased total protein, albumin, and antioxidative enzyme activities (superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) were observed in A. testudineus exposed to CPF (p . 0.05). Over the last few decades the contamination of fresh water with a wide range of pollutants has become a matter of concern. D.A.P contamination accounts for potential threat for aquatic organisms, which are exposed to Agricultural cum pisciculture activities. High concentration of diammonium phosphate can be hazardous to physiological and biochemical system of fish Anabas testudenius which in turn affects human beings. The aim of the present study is to investigate the changes in biochemical parameters of A. testudineus exposed to D.A.P.
