Industries are major sources of toxic discharges. The wastewater from industries exhibit adverse effects in aquatic system. The present study was carried out to investigate the impact of industrial effluent discharge on zebrafish in terms of oxidative stress. Biomarkers selected for oxidative stress monitoring were evaluated in liver, kidney and brain of zebrafish exposed to the effluent (5 times diluted). Results indicate that acute exposure to the effluent is capable of inducing toxicity in zebrafish. From the outcome of this study it can be concluded that further wastewater management/treatment is required to overcome the potential risks posed by effluents to ecosystems and human health.
