Abstract : The Onchocerciasis Control Programme (OCP) is realized in the major part of the treated area by weekly applications of temephos in biotopes of simulles larvae. This insecticide is very effective and its impact on the aquatic fauna is evaluated by means of periodic samplings of the fauna. Therefore, the most sensitive way of tracking down fish poisoning is by studying the brain acetylcholinesterase depression. Evaluated on Tilapia guineensis this lowering is moderate when operational doses are used by OCP. The discovery of resistence to temephos incited researchers of OCP to try remplacement insecticides. Among these, chlorphoxim, chlorpyrifos-methyl and pirimiphos-methyl proved to be the most effect of these three organophosphorus compounds to that of temephos on the acetylcholinesterasic activity of the brain of Tilapia but using a much higher dosage (0,05 mg/l during 24 hrs that is 144 times more than for temephos). The results demonstrate that the three remplacement insecticides have on inhibitive effect plainly more important than that of temephos and that the retour to normal activity requires a much longer time.
