Maximum acceptable toxicant concentrations (MATC's) for each pesticide for both species were estimated by measuring survival, growth and reproduction success as indicators of toxic effects. The MATC for acrolein was estimated to be >16.9 and <33.6 microgram/l for daphnids and >11.4 and <41.7 for fathead minnows, those estimated for heptachlor were >12.5 and <25.0 micrograms/l for daphnids and >0.86 and <1.84 micrograms/l for fathead minnows, those estimated for endosulfan were >2.7 and <7.0 micrograms/l for daphnids and >0.2 and <0.4 micrograms/l for fathead minnows, and those estimated for trifluralin were >2.4 and <7.2 micrograms/l for daphnids and >1.9 and <5.1 micrograms/l for fathead minnows.
