Acute toxicity of ethofenprox to the freshwater fish, Oreochromis mossambicus (Peters)



Acute toxicity of ethofenprox to the freshwater fish, Oreochromis mossambicus (Peters)



Journal of Environmental Biology 20(2): 153-155



Acute toxicity of insecticide ethofenprox (Trebon) to the freshwater fish Oreochromis mossambicus was studied using static bioassay method. Median lethal concentration for 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, 72 and 96 h were 2.03, 1.95, 1.90, 1.85, 1.79, 1.76 and 1.74 ppm respectively. The signs of toxicity on the behaviour of the fish Oreochromis mossambicus was studied for lethal (2.849 ppm) and sublethal (1.305 ppm) concentration ethofenprox for 96 h.
