Laboratory studies were conducted to determine lethal limits (96 hr TL50) for Toxaphene, salinity, temperature, and dissolved oxygen and their interaction effects on developmental stages of selected warm-temperate and subtropical fishes and crustaceans. Species tested were Micropterus salmoides (largemouth bass), Mugil cephalus (striped mullet), Mugil curema (silver mullet), Trachinotus carolinus (pompano), Callinectes sapidus (blue crab), Penaeus duorarum (pink shrimp), Sesarma cinereum (drift line crab), and Rhithropanopeus harrisii (mud crab). Histopathological and gross morphological studies were conducted on all early life history stages of the species included.
