Specific anion effects in Artemia salina

Lo Nostro, Pierandrea; Ninham, Barry; Carretti, Emiliano; Dei, Luigi; Baglioni, Piero


The specific anion effect on the vitality of Artemia salina was investigated by measuring the Lethal Time LT50 of the crustaceans in the presence of different sodium salts solutions at room temperature and at the same ionic strength as natural seawater. Fluoride, thiocyanate and perchlorate are the most toxic agents, while chloride, bromide and sulfate are well tolerated. The rates of oxygen consumption of brine shrimps were recorded in mixed NaCl+NaF or NaCl+NaSCN solutions as a function of...[Show more]
