The toxicity of mercury (HgCl2), copper (CuCl2: 5 H20), nickel (NiSO4: 6 H2O), lead (Pb(CH3COO)2: 3 H2O) and cobalt (CoCl2: 6 H2O) was studied under standardized conditions in embryos and larvae of the zebrafish, Brachydanio rerio. Exposures were started at the blastula stage (2-4 h after spawning) and the effects on hatching and survival were monitored daily for 16 days. Copper and nickel were more specific inhibitors of hatching than cobalt, lead, and mercury. Nominal "no effect… CONTINUE READING
