Succinate dehydrogenase is important amongst the several molecules available in the cells and carbohydrates plays an important role in the cellular process. In the present investigation, fish, Channa punctatus treated with an equitoxic dose of 11 ppm of Mercuric nitrate and Mercuric acetate were scarified on 1, 4, 8, 12 and 15 days for recovery patterns in liver, muscle, kidney, gill and brain . Mercury toxicated fishes recovered after 15 days which depends on the physical condition of the fish.
