The Use of the Mortality Rate of Marine Fish Prelarvae for the Estimation of Zinc and Lead Toxicity

The Use of the Mortality Rate of Marine Fish Prelarvae for the Estimation of Zinc and Lead Toxicity The effect of zinc on the prelarvae of the Japanese anchovy Engraulis japonicus and on the sand flounder Limanda punctatissima punctatissima and of lead on the prelarvae of the Japanese anchovy was investigated. The median lethal concentrations and maximum ineffective concentrations for a 96-h exposure were calculated. The maximum ineffective concentrations of metals did not exceed their background levels in Peter the Great Bay (Sea of Japan) but were markedly lower than the maximum permissible concentrations (MPC) set for waters of the seas of the Russian Federation. The prelarvae of the Japanese anchovy and the sand flounder can be useful for evaluation and comparison of the toxicity of pollutants and for the estimation of regional MPC levels for pollutants of marine waters. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
