Fish management practices often require elimination of an undesireable fish population from a body of water to enable restocking with fry or fingerlings of a suitable species. The deliberate addition of a fish toxicant to a water supply source requires careful appraisal of its effect on water quality and safety. The practice demands consideration of toxicity of active agents to humans, other mammals, and fish; effects of fish poison formulation; tastes and odors produced by the components of the formulation; and effects on water quality which may result from decomposing fish. Rotenone, toxaphene, and powdered cube root were the fish poisons and formulations selected for study.
