Abstract :

 The present study deals with the behavioral change of fresh water fish common carp cyprinus carpio var. communis exposed to zinc oxide nanoparticles in. Zinc nanoparticles were synthesized using precipitation method. Cyprinus carpio was exposed to different concentration (250mg, 500mg, 1000mg, 1500mg and 2000mg) of ZnO nanoparticles for a period of 14 days. Behavioural changes were observed from day 1 of exposure of fish to ZnO nanoparticles till 14th day. The activities like Circular motion, jerk moment, aggressive behavior, surface respiration and bottom resting were affected due to the exposure of ZnO nanoparticles.
