The Indian freshwater air-breathing teleost fish Channa punctatus (Bloch) was exposed to acute concentrations of the organochlorine pesticide endosulfan. In flow-through bioassays the 24, 48, 72, and 96 h LC(50) values were estimated as 19.67, 12.95, 10.15, and 7.75 ppb, respectively. DNA damage (single-strand breaks) was also studied in gill and kidney(More)
Acute toxicity tests (96 h) were conducted in flow-through systems to determine the lethal toxicity of a heavy metal compound, mercuric chloride, and an organophosphorus pesticide, malathion, to air-breathing teleost fish, Channa punctatus (Bloch) and to study their behavior. The 96-h LC50 values were determined, as well as safe levels. The results indicate(More)
