Abstract Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in the nervous tissue (brain) of the fish Brachydanio rerio was significantly inhibited by exposure to the organophosphorus (OP) pesticide, malathion. The inhibition was dose- as well as time-dependent. The fish survived even when the activity of the enzyme was inhibited by 90\%. There was a significant recovery in the activity of AChE when malathion stress was lifted.
