In the present studies, an attempt has been to analyse the effect of lindane on immune organs of fish, Aspidoparia morar. The fish was exposed to different sublethal concentrations of lindane (10%, 20% and 30% of LC50 value of lindane) for the period of 60 days. LC50 value of lindane for A. morar was found to be 1mg/l. On exposure to lindane, fish has been found to exhibit marked alterations in the cellular architecture (both agranulocytes and granulocytes) of the immune organs viz., anterior kidney, spleen and thymus. These alterations ultimately become the cause of hampering the entire metabolic machinery thereby affecting the physiological status of the fish.
