This summary presents acute and chronic toxicity test data and bioconcentration factors compiled over a 2-year period on fish and invertebrates exposed to several representative chemicals from 5 chemical classes (chlorinated ethanes, chlorinated benzenes, chlorinated ethylenes, chlorinated dienes, and chlorinated propanes). The ranking of acute and chronic sensitivity was generally the same for each chemical within each class of chemicals for all three species tested. Both the acute and chronic toxicity of all chemicals within a class increased as the number of chlorines in the chemical structure increased.
