OBJECTIVES This study assessed the subchronic effects of a triazine compound, simazine, on common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) though, via by means of biometric, biochemical, hematological, and histological examination. DESIGN One-year-old fish were exposed to simazine at four concentrations, 0.06, (reported concentration in Czech rivers), 4, 20, and 50 microg L-1 for 28 days and compared to carp in a non-treated control group. RESULTS Exposure of fish to simazine at 0.06 microg L-1 had no… CONTINUE READING
