OBJECTIVES Anaesthetics are used in aquaculture to prevent stress and mechanical damage to fish during handling or the treatment of fish in breeding, blood sampling and other veterinary interventions. Clove oil and 2-phenoxyethanol are used in the Czech Republic in a water bath for the short-term immobilization of the fish. DESIGN Acute toxicity tests(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate effects of subchronic exposure to sublethal levels of terbutryn on growth and on histopathological changes in Danio rerio. DESIGN The acute toxicity tests were performed on the juvenile stage of Danio rerio according to OECD No. 203 Fish, Acute Toxicity Test. The juvenile growth tests were performed on(More)
Common pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) hens kept in different housing systems during laying period were exposed to a tonic immobility test. At the end of the laying period, the shortest duration of the tonic immobility, and thus the lowest fear level, was found in birds kept in enriched cages, i.e. cages equipped with 2 perches and a hiding place. The(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the impact of metribuzin in surface waters on fish under experimental conditions. The effects of subchronic exposure to metribuzin on fish growth and the development of histopathological changes in selected organs (gill, kidney, liver) and on activity of some biochemical markers (CYP450, EROD) in Danio rerio were(More)
OBJECTIVES Ketoprofen is a common human medicine from a class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which is provably detected in surface waters in concentrations ordinarily in μg.L-1. The aim of this study was to compare the acute toxicity of ketoprofen to embryonic and juvenile stages of aquarium fish - zebrafish (Danio rerio). METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES Simazine is a triazine herbicide which has been used for a long period in agriculture and in the aquatic environment for control of weeds and algae. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of subchronic exposure to simazine on growth and the development of histopathological changes in selected organs (gills, kidney, liver) in Danio(More)
OBJECTIVES Formaldehyde, sodium chloride and potassium permanganate belong to the commonly used substances for fish treatment. The aim is to define and compare their acute toxicity and therapeutic index between two fish species - Danio rerio and Poecilia reticulata. DESIGN To determine acute toxicity of these compounds, the semistatic method was(More)
