Representatives of the aquatic invertebrate species of water flea (Daphnia magna), midge (Chironomus tentans), and scud (Gammarus fasciatus) and the fish species of bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus), fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas), and brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) were chronically exposed to various concentrations of lindane in separate flowing water systems. Maximum acceptable toxicant concentrations (MATC) of lindane for the selected species in soft water were estimated using survival, growth, and reproduction as indicators of toxic effects.
