Abstract
Short-term chronic toxicity tests using five salt-water species-two fishes, a mysid, a sea urchin, and a macro-algae were developed. Copper sulfate and sodium dodecyl sulfate were used as representative toxicants. Coefficients of variation for LC50 results ranged from 1.8 to 46.4%. The precision obtained is comparable to other toxicity tests, but it is uncertain whether the precision of such tests in general is acceptable.
