      Specimens ofNotopterus notopterus were exposed to three subl that concentrations (1/10th, 1/15th and 1/20th of 96 hr LC50) of phenol (P), 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP), pentachlorophenol (PCP), and their three combinations (PCP + DNP)/P (highly antagonistic), (DNP + P)/PCP (additive) and (P + DNP)/PCP (highly synergistic) for 15 and 30 days, and brain, liver, kidney and gills were taken out separately for determining acid phosphatase activity. In general, inhibition was maximum (89–32%) and highly significant (P<0·001) in brain, and minimum (6–93%) and insignificant in kidney of fish exposed to 1/10th of (P + DNP)/PCP and P, respectively after 30 days. When P, DNP and PCP were used separately PCP exerted more inhibitory effects than DNP and P. However, significant stimulation (P<0·05; P<001) at 1/15th and J/20th of P and DNP both after 15 and 30 days, and insignificant at 1/20th of (PCP + DNP)/P after 15 days was also observed in kidney.
