Sublethal Effects of Biogenic Silver Nanoparticles and Silver Nitrate in the Neotropical Fish Prochilodus lineatus: Is the Nanoform Really Less Toxic?
TLDR
The effects of bNAg were similar to the effects of AgNO3, and animals exposed to the highest concentration of silver were the most affected, regardless of the form of silver used in the exposure medium.
Tissue distribution of radiolabeled 110mAg nanoparticles in fish: Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus).
TLDR
This study presents the first whole-body tissue distributions of dissolved (AgI) and 20-nm silver nanoparticles (Ag0NPs20) in fish and proposes that dissolved silver could later precipitate as chloride, sulfide or selenide and be incorporated in bones during the growth.

TLDR
Of the silver particles tested, N( 10) were found to be the most highly concentrated within gill tissues and N(10) and N (Bulk) were the mosthighly concentrated in liver.
Cellular and molecular responses of adult zebrafish after exposure to CuO nanoparticles or ionic copper
TLDR
Each copper form showed a distinct pattern of liver transcriptome regulation, but both caused gill histopathological alterations and long lasting impaired health status in adult zebrafish.
Organ-Specific and Size-Dependent Ag Nanoparticle Toxicity in Gills and Intestines of Adult Zebrafish.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the importance of particle size in determining the hazardous impact of AgNPs in the gills and intestines of adult zebrafish.
In Vivo Toxicity of Silver Nanoparticles and Silver Ions in Zebrafish (Danio rerio)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that silver nanoparticles are lethal to zebrafish by demonstrating increased rate of operculum movement and surface respiration after nanosilver exposure, suggesting respiratory toxicity.
Comparison of molecular and histological changes in zebrafish gills exposed to metallic nanoparticles.
TLDR
Global gene expression analysis demonstrates that the exposure to each nanometal or soluble metal produces a distinct gene expression profile at both 24 and 48 h, suggesting that each exposure is producing biological response by a different mechanism.
Effects of Short-Term Exposure to Sublethal Concentrations of Silver Nanoparticles on Histopathology and Electron Microscope Ultrastructure of Zebrafish (Danio Rerio) Gills
TLDR
Based on the adverse effects of AgNPs on zebrafish gills, silver nanoparticle significantly increased the diameter of gill filaments and secondary lamellae, while silver nanoparticles significantly reduced the length of the secondary gills in zebra fish.
