The present study was undertaken to investigate the acute toxicity of copper in the juveniles of Asian sea bass Lates calcarifer (Bloch) which is considered as an important candidate fish species for brackish and freshwater aquaculture. Experiments for the bioassay were performed in static bioassay test condition according to the standard guidelines. Median lethal concentrations (LC50) were calculated for 24h, 48h, 72h and 96h by Probit analysis. The LC50 values for 24, 48, 72 and 96h and 95% confidence intervals for the juveniles of sea bass L. calcarifer showed 110.83, 93.58, 76.71 and 68.32 ppm/l for copper.Pages: 337-342 | 1026 Views 8 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
