Possible effects of heavy metal mixture (HMM) on hatching, survival and growth have been tested on the early-life-history stages of rainbow trout. The eggs of rainbow trout were exposed to HMM concentrations of between 12.5% and 200% from fertilisation to near complete yolk absorption, for 70 days. Water hardness and pH were approximately 250 mg/l CaCO3 and 7.5, respectively. The following concentrations of metals in the model mixture tested were taken as 100%: Cu – 0.02, Cr – 0.02, Ni – 0.05… CONTINUE READING
