Flow-through 96-hr and early-life stage toxicity tests were conducted with acenaphthene and isophorone, using fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) as test animals. The 96-hr LC50's were 608 micro/L for acenaphthene and 145 and 255 micro/L for isophorone, depending on fish age. No-efect concentrations from early-life-stage exposures were 413 g acenaphthene/L and 14 mg isophorone/L; these showed good agreement with published toxicity data.
