Insecticides are a potential hazard for non-target organisms like fish particularly at run off events. The study of effects to embryos of the zebra fish Danio rerio is already an accepted tool in waste water monitoring, but effects of various groups of substances (like most pesticides) to the zebrafish embryo remain to be studied. Enzymes are often taken as biomarkers of exposure and effect. Therefore cholinesterase isozymes and carboxylesterase were examined for their suitability as biomarkers… CONTINUE READING
