Heavy metals may interact with ecological factors such as temperature, food level and salinity, causing both mortality and reduced reproduction in organisms. Among different heavy metals, copper compounds are commonly used for eliminating algal blooms in aquaculture tanks. At certain concentrations, copper is toxic to rotifers. In the present work, we evaluated the combined effects of salt concentrations (2.5 and 5.0 g l−1 NaCl), copper levels (0, 0.03125, 0.0625, 0.125 and 0.25 mg l−1 as CuCl2… CONTINUE READING
