The current study includes the histopathological alterations induced by chronic (20 days) exposure of the fish Anabas testudineus to a sublethal concentrations (27.5 mg/L) of inorganic fertilizer, Urea [CO(NH2)2]. Some vital organs were taken for the study that is kidney, liver, intestine, testis and ovary. The present study showed major histopathological alteration like vacuolar degenerative changes, necrosis etc. found in liver, intestine, testis, ovary and kidney organs dysfunction in response to urea toxicity effect in the fish A. testudineus. So, it is suggested that more suitable to culture at water fertilizer, Urea concentration of < 27.5 mg/l for optimum growth performance. The information will be major role on different levels of responses of organisms with respect to pollutant stress is a necessary pre-requisite for the proper management of fertilizer application in agriculture and aquaculture.

Keywords: Anabas testudineus, fertilizer, histopathology, pollutant, Urea
