Mysids in toxicity testing a review


Mysids in toxicity testing a review



Hydrobiologia 93(1-2): 171-178

The use of mysid shrimp, particularly Mysidopsis, along with specific testing procedures has become accepted in aquatic toxicology. Investigators have developed methodologies for culture and testing of these organisms. Acute and chronic (life cycle) toxicity tests in addition to dredge spoil and effluent tests with mysids are now becoming common. Attempts have been made to use mysids as test organisms in behavioral, physiological, nutritional and food-chain studies. In general, Mysidopsis spp. are as sensitive or more sensitive to toxic substances than are other marine species. The ease of handling and culture, relative sensitivity to toxicants, short life cycle, small size and direct larval development make these organisms desirable for research purposes. Continued research using mysid species will probably demonstrate greater usefulness of these organisms in assessment of pollutant impacts on estuarine or marine communities.
