Abstract This manual describes methods for measuring the acute toxicity of effluents to freshwater and marine macroinvertebrates and fish. The methods include a preliminary range-finding test, a screening test, and multi-concentration (definitive) static and flow-through toxicity tests. Also included are guidelines on laboratory safety, quality assurance, facilities and equipment, effluent sampling and holding, dilution water, test species selection and handling, data interpretation and utilization, report preparation, test organism culturing, dilutor and mobile bioassay laboratory design and calibration, and equipment check lists and computer programs for calculating the LC50 and confidence intervals.
