An attempt has been made to determine the deleterious effects of λ cyhalothrin-induced in fresh water tilapia (O.mossambicus) with respect to changes in the activities of lipids in the liver. Significant (p<0.05) elevation in the level of lipid peroxidation and in the level of cholesterol was observed in λ cyhalothrin-intoxicated fishes as compared to controls. Significant (p<0.05) decline was also observed in phospholipid and free fatty acids in λ cyhalothrin treated fishes as compared to controls. The result of the present study indicated that the overall hepatotoxic effect of λ cyhalothrin is probably related to lipid accumulation by its hyperlipidemic nature and/or the formation of free radicals by its oxidative character.
