Effect of mirex on predator prey interaction in an experimental estuarine ecosystem



Effect of mirex on predator prey interaction in an experimental estuarine ecosystem



Transactions of the American Fisheries Society 105(4): 546-549



Tests of 14- to 16-days duration were conducted to determine the distribution and sublethal effects of mirex in an experimental estuarine ecosystem. The insecticide was translocated from water at concentrations of 0.011-0.13 .mu.g/l to sand, plant and animal components. An alteration of predator-prey interaction due to mirex was manifested by a significant difference (.chi.2 test, .alpha. = 0.05) in survival of grass shrimp Palaemonetes vulgaris in control and treated tanks after 1, 2 or 3 days of predation by pinfish Lagodon rhomboides.
