1. Coho salmon, exposed to sublethal levels of aqueous copper (1/4 and 1/2 LC50), lost appetite and ceased growing or showed decreased rates of growth. 2. Recovery of appetite and growth rate was faster in fish exposed to 1/4 of the LC50 than in those exposed to 1/2 of the LC50. 3. Copper levels were elevated in liver gill and kidney of exposed fish with the liver tissue accumulating a much larger amount of the metal than any other tissue. 4. The concentration of liver copper became constant at… CONTINUE READING
