Carp of the individual weigh of 92-625 g were subjected to lethal concentrations of deltametrin and lambda-cyhalotrin. Moribund fish were killed and their pectoral fins along with the associated muscles were dissected. Such preparations were stimulated electrically. No effect of the pyrethroids studied was observed on the value of the muscle stimulation threshold. Similarly, no effect was visible on the ergographic records of the work performed.
