The combined effects of pesticide Thiodan, heavy metal chromium and detergent Ekaline FI on fish and fish food organisms


Journal of Environmental Biology 16(1): 19-26
The combined effects of pesticide Thiodan, heavy metal chromium and detergent Ekaline FI on fish and fish food organisms
Acute 96-hour bioassay experiments of thiodan, chromium and ekaline FI jointly were conducted for fish Oreochromis mossambicus (Trewaves), plankton Cyclpos viridis and worm Branchiura sowerbyi. LC-5 to LC-95 of thoidan-chromium-ekaline FI mixture ranged from 294.3-464.0 ppm, 4.0-87.5 ppm and 460-1360 ppm for fish, plankton and worm respectively. Growth and reproduction of fish was hampered impact on pH dissolved oxygen (DO), alkalinity and hardness of water. The mixture exhibited synergistic toxic effect on plankton and additive and antagonistic on worm and fish.
