      The fathead minnow was chosen for this work because it is widely used in ecotoxicology research, due to its ease of culture and well defined life history. 29 The extensive research conducted to date in the minnow has shown it to be an important model for cross species and laboratory to field based extrapolations. 29 Together these Cited by: toxicity of copper, silver, and cadmium. In this paper, we describe the development and application of a biotic ligand model for zinc (Zn BLM). The data used in the development of the Zn BLM includes acute zinc LC50 data for several aquatic organisms including rainbow trout, fathead minnow, and Daphnia magna. Important chemical effects were.

    Forty-four species of the family are found in Canada, most of them small minnows similar in appearance to the fathead minnow. Maximum lengths of fathead minnows in Canada are to cm, with mature females being smaller, normally 4 to 7 cm (Andrews and Flickinger, ; Scott and rossman, ).Sample requirement: as for effluents, leachates, and elutriates.

    whereas secondary sex characteristics are measured in fathead minnow and Japanese medaka. Additionally, quantitative fecundity is monitored daily throughout the test. Gonads are also preserved and histopathology may be evaluated to assess the reproductive fitness of the test animals and to add to the weight of evidence of other endpoints Size: 1MB.

Anne Tilghman Hall has written: 'Reproductive and behavioral toxicity of anthracene in the fathead minnow (Pimephalaes promelas)' -- subject(s): Fishes, Effect of chemicals on, Reproduction. Environmental toxicologists rarely investigate multigeneration effects of aquatic contaminants.

In this study we investigated the survivorship of fathead minnow larvae two generations removed from an exposure to the potent mutagen benzo[a] F2 broods with a grandparental exposure history showed a marked decrease in by: Fathead Minnow (Pimephales promelas) Larval Survival and Growth Toxicity Tests Supplement to Training Video.

The long-term effects of anthracene (a phototoxic 3-ring polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) on the reproductive potential of fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) were ly mature adult fish (1 male and 2 females per aquarium) were exposed in the absence of solar ultraviolet radiation (SUVR) to 0, 6, or 12 μg anthracene/l for 6 weeks, followed by Cited by: Courtship/reproductive behavior in the fathead minnow is elaborate and relatively well-defined (McMillan and Smith,Ming and Noakes,Cole and Smith, ).

Following spawning, males are highly territorial, actively guarding nest sites where the adhesive eggs had been deposited by the females (Andrews and Flickinger, ).Cited by:   Abstract. The fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) larval survival and growth test was used to evaluate the relative sensitivity of 1- 4- and 7-d-old larvae to five contaminants, KCl, NaCl, 1-octanol, carbaryl, and no observable effect concentration (NOEC) for survival of the two inorganic compounds, KCl and NaCl, was not affected by age of the larvae.

For these reasons, the effects of atrazine (5 and 50 μg/L) on several endpoints related to reproductive fitness were examined in fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) in a 21‐d static exposure.

Estradiol ( μg/L) was included as a positive‐control by: behavior in the fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) using the standard light-dark anxiety behavioral bioassay.

At the onset of the experiment, minnows exposed to ethanol, fluoxetine, and copper for one day displayed anxiolytic behaviors at lower concentrations. Longer exposures to buspirone and diazepam also elicited anxiolytic : Anna Lee McLeod.

life-cycle toxicity test methods developed for fathead minnow (Benoit, ) and sheepshead minnow (Hansen et al., ). The test is intended to serve as a higher tier for collecting definitive concentration-response information on adverse effects suitable for use in ecological risk assessment.

fathead minnow has been (and is) used in the field of regulatory toxicology, and assess the potential of this species as a model for emerging needs and issues in toxicological research. General biology of the fathead minnow.

The fathead minnow is a member of the ecologically impor-tant Cyprinidae family, with a relatively broad distribution. An empirically derived database for diverse chemical structures of acute toxicity and corresponding modes of toxic action was developed through joint toxic action studies, the establishment of toxicodynamic profiles, and behavioral.

Physical description: Adult fathead minnows are small in size and can range from 43 to millimeters in length, although the average length is 50 males have nuptial tubercles and an elongate pad extending in a narrow line from the nape to the dorsal fin.

The sides of the bodies of males become almost black except for two wide vertical bands which. Fathead minnow acute toxicity database. Ninety-six-hour flow-through exposures using to d-old juvenile fathead minnows were conducted on chemicals [15–19].

Com-pounds were selected for testing from the Toxic Substances Control Act inventory of chemicals to represent a cross-section of industrial organic chemicals [20].

For quality. In order to test the effects of lead on reproductive behavior and fertility, fathead minnows were exposed to lead (20 PPM) and are therefore used as a model organism for humans.

The minnow provides an effective representation of humans in that. @article{osti_, title = {Reproduction, embryonic development, and maternal transfer of contaminants in the amphibian Gastrophryne carolinensis}, author = {Hopkins, W A and DuRant, S E and Staub, B P and Rowe, C L and Jackson, B P}, abstractNote = {Although many amphibian populations around the world are declining at alarming rates, the cause of most declines.

behavioral and health problems (Danylchuk). Fathead Minnows are a small species of fish that can be found throughout North America. Females lay their eggs under rocks in order to shelter them from the surrounding environment (Danylchuk).

Exposure to lead can cause detrimental effects to the nervous system and kidney function. The present study quantified alterations in male fathead minnow reproductive behaviors after exposure to environmentally relevant concentrations (0, 10, 20, or 40 ng/L) of 17alpha-ethinylestradiol.The fathead minnow, Pimephales promelas, is widely used as a bait, forage, and research fish in the United States.

A hardy and fecund fish, this species. The toxicity end-points are based on the 96 h LC50 (mmol/L) values for the fathead minnow, which used for standard toxicity test described by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

We used QNA (Quantitative Neighbourhoods of Atoms) descriptors and Self-Consistent Regression for QSAR modeling of acute toxicity in the fathead : Alexey Zakharov, A Lagunin, D Filimonov, V Poroikov.
