Abstract: Present study reports the response of zebrafish embryos exposed <i>in vivo</i> to graded concentrations of Nonylphenol (NP), ranging from high lethal levels to lower, more environmentally relevant levels. Embryos treated with NP showing developmental abnormalities and morphological alterations in a dose-dependent pattern. Results suggest that early exposure to NP can cause direct and delayed mortalities or even non-lethal malformations at doses more than 0.3 μM, while EC<sub>50</sub> was shown to be 1 μM after 6 days of exposure.
