Acute Toxicity Of Some Oil Dispersants To Mullet Fry ( Liza Macrolepis) Of The Arabian Gulf
MetadataShow full item record
The acute toxicity of Shell LTX, Shell Concentrate, Servo CD 2000 and Exxon OSD 9217 were used to calculate 72 - hr. LC ci\ and toxicity curves to the Mullet Fry ( Liza macrolepis) under the Arabian Gulf conditions (Temp. s 20 C and Salinity s- 40 %°). These dispersants are specified by the manufacturers to be non - ionic and to have less than 3 % of aromatic content. The 72 - hr. LC en were 244, 55, 44 and 27 ppm respectively. These values are different from the manufactureres' information sheets probably because of using different animal species under different environmental conditions to those of the Gulf.
