In the present study the author intend to study the sub-lethal and lethal effect of arsenic separately and in presence of chelating agent zinc on bio-chemical compartmentation of hexokinase, in various brain regions (cerebrum, diencephalon, cerebellum and medulla oblongata) in three phylogenetically and ontogenetically different fish species i.e. Labeo rohita (Ham) Clarias batrachus (Linn) and Channa punctatus (Bloch) under acute studies from a tropical environment.
