In response to recent changes in National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit regulations, rapid (7-day) static renewal toxicity tests have been developed to detect chronic (sublethal and lethal) effect concentrations of municipal and industrial effluents on freshwater and marine/estuarine organisms. This paper evaluates results from short-term (7-day) chronic effluent tests measuring effects on the growth and survival of the larvae of estuarine sheepshead minnow (Cyprinodon… CONTINUE READING
