This study aims to investigate the fate and histopathological effects of ethion on selected organs of the crayfish, Procamabrus clarkii. Crayfish were exposed to 1 mg l(-1) (14)C-ethion and the concentrations of ethion and its possible degradation products were measured in water and different organs of the crayfish over both the exposure and recovery periods. Chromatographic analysis revealed that ethion was degraded into ethion monooxon, ethion dioxon, O,O-diethyl phosphorothioate, O-ethyl… CONTINUE READING
