Additional information

The bioconcentration factor of TCP was tested in accordance with OECD Guideline 305 over six weeks in a continuous flow-through system using carp (Cyprinus carpio) (MITI 1992). Two levels of 0.02 and 0.2 % were tested. The test solutions were prepared with the dispersant HCO-40. The fish had on average a lipid content of 5.1 %. The bioconcentration factors found at the low dose ranged from 5.3 to 13, and corresponding factors at the high dose ranged from 5.4 to 12.
