Description of key information

Acute toxicity to rainbow trout 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
0.016 mg/L

Additional information

A toxicity of PB-370 to rainbow traut was assessed by conducting a limit test at maximum soluble concentration (100mg/L), over a 96 h period, under static conditions. One fish was found dead. This case of mortality may have been due to aggressive behaviour of other fish rather then chemical effect as the dead fish had severly torn find. No mortality was observed in the control group.

Undissolved test material was present in the tanks. It is concluded that the LC50 is > maximum water solubility of FR-370.

Thus, the water solubility value of 0.0156 mg/l was taken for chemical safety assessment.
