The freshwater field crab, Spiralothelphusa hydrodroma is an important human food source in various parts of South India. The impact of textile dye industry effluent (TDIE) on the experimental female crab S.hydrodroma (Herbst) was carried out. Effect of TDIE on the biochemical changes in the neurosecretory cells such as brain, thoracic ganglia and eyestalk were observed. Quantitative study of biochemical changes of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), acid phosphotase
