Fish-specific toxic equivalency factors (TEFs), which relate the toxic potency of polyhalogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (PHAHs) to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) based on the endpoint of early life stage mortality, have been used in assessing the risk to fish early life stage survival of complex mixtures of PHAHs in feral fish eggs. Use of TEFs assumes that PHAH congeners act additively. However, this has not been unequivocally determined. Isobolograms and a probit model were used… CONTINUE READING
