Present study was aimed to observe the acid phosphotase activity of liver and muscle of fresh water fish Ophiocephalus striatus after exposure to sublethal concentration of malathion. The acid phosphatase activity was measured by the colorimetric method. The significant decrease in acid phosphotase activity of liver and muscle in treated group compared with control was observed. Inhibition of this enzyme may be due to a high tissue toxicant level, which affected the synthesis of enzyme directly
