Organophosphate insecticide Nuvan (DDVP) has selected for the present study, Lethal concentrations were calculated for the fresh water snake headed fish Channa punctatus i.e 0.27ml/L after 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours. For the chronic study 1/10th of the Nuvan concentration (0.027ml/L) was provided to the observed fishes. Blood serum lipoprotein HDL, VLDL and LDL High Density lipoprotein, Very low Density lipoprotein and low density lipoprotein respectively  were estimated after chronic toxic stress of Nuvan to fish Channa punctatus. Fish serum lipoprotein and  HDL revealed significant decrease level while LDL and VLDL showed significant elevated level after 7, 14, 21, and 28 days at different level p <0.01 and p <0.001.All values are mentioned in graphs respectively.
