J. D. Vasait and V. T. Patil

Abstract

The toxicity of Monocroptophos on the mortality of Nernachedus botia has been studied. The L values found 49.6 and 42 ppm for 7 and 14 days exposures period, respectively. The observed result indicates that the mortality of the test fish to Monocrotophos was dose-time dependant. The altered behavioural responses were also observed under investigations in the test organism exposed to Monocrotophos.
