The effects of Ca, Mg and pH on the toxicity of Ni to juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) were examined during 17-26-day exposures to Ni in 15 synthetic test solutions. Higher chemical activities of Ca2+, Mg2+ and H+ reduced Ni toxicity, as demonstrated by increased 17-day median lethal concentrations expressed as Ni2+ activity (17-d LC50(Ni2+)). A non-linear increase of the 17-d LC50(Ni2+) with increasing H+ suggested that the effect of pH could not be appropriately described by… CONTINUE READING
