This study used rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) to investigate the biological effects of long-term exposure to a total chlorine-free (TCF) pulp mill effluent. Fish tanks were set up on the premises of the pulp mill, and fresh effluent water was led through a pipe directly from the pulp mill to the tanks. The fish were exposed to effluent for up to 50 days and kept for up to 70 days afterward to study the recovery process. Two independent experiments were carried out.
