Physiological changes in reproductively active rainbowfish (Melanotaenia fluviatilis) following exposure to naphthalene

Pollino, Carmel; Georgiades, Eugene; Holdway, Douglas A.

Description

Naphthalene makes up a substantial fraction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in crude oil and is an important by-product of industry; however, few studies have investigated the toxicity of naphthalene to aquatic organisms. We examined the toxicity of increasing concentrations (0, carrier control, 130, 200 and 400 μg/l) of naphthalene to adult rainbowfish (Melanotaenia fluviatilis) for 3 and 14 days to determine its potential to act as an endocrine disruptor. After exposure for 3 days,...[Show more]
