A review of the preference-avoidance responses of fishes to aquatic contamination

, : A review of the preference-avoidance responses of fishes to aquatic contamination. Residue Reviews 87: 43-90

Comparison of conc. of chemical contaminants causing preference and/or avoidance in fishes with those eliciting other behaviour changes, biochemical or physiological alterations and toxicity indicated that preference-avoidance response was a sensitive indicator of sublethal poisoning in fishes for many of the compounds examined, including 2,4-D.
