Toxicity of ozone-produced oxidants (OPO) to striped bass, Morone saxatilis, eggs, larvae, and fingerlings were determined under continuous-flow conditions. Eggs, tested in both fresh and estuarine water, were found to be significantly (P<0.001) more sensitive to OPO in freshwater. The higher sensitivity found for striped bass eggs in freshwater suggests that ozone could have a more pronounced effect if discharged in freshwater industrial or municipal wastewaters located in the vicinity of a striped bass spawning area. The ozone data collected in this study were compared with previously published chlorine toxicity data for each striped bass life stage.
