Three chronic bioassays of Guthion (azinphosmethyl) were conducted with fathead minnows. All tests were begun with eggs, and the longest lasted 20 days after termination of spawning, a total of 250 days. Parameters measured were survival, growth, fecundity, and growth and survival of second generation fry and eggs. The most sensitive criteria for effect of the toxicant was fecundity. The maximum acceptable toxicant concentration was between 0.33 and 0.51 microgram/liter Guthion and the application factor between .00017 and .00027.
Prepared by Department of Entomology, Fisheries, and Wildlife, University of Minnesota, St. Paul, Minn., under grant no. R800940. Includes appendix and bibliographies.
