An Overview of Sensory Effects on Juvenile Salmonids Exposed to Dissolved Copper : Applying a Benchmark Concentration Approach to Evaluate Sublethal Neurobehavioral Toxicity

Dissolved copper (dCu) is a ubiquitous, toxic pollutant in U.S. surface waters. Four decades of research with dCu, indicate toxicity to multiple fish endpoints including fish sensory systems and behaviors. This document summarizes literature on the effects of dCu to salmonid sensory systems and conducts a targeted analysis on a recent sensory system… CONTINUE READING
