Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP) is a commerically important phthalate ester identified as a priority pollutant by the Environmental Protection Agency. The Clean Water Act of 1977 (PL 95-217) requires the Administrator of the EPA to publish criteria for water quality that accurately reflect current scientific knowledge of the extent and effects of pollutants present in water bodies. Section 304(a)(1) of the Act provides for the nonregulatory, scientific assessment of ecological effects. This work was conducted to provide data for Section 304 on the toxicity of BBP to saltwater fish.
