Abstract
The report covers an investigation of the toxicity to fish of some of the principal effluents from the Hooker Electrochemical Company. Chemical wastes may contain compounds which are toxic to aquatic life. These compounds when mixed with or under the influence of other non-toxic components of the effluent or receiving water may exert an entirely different toxicity from that of the pure compounds. Bio-assays were made to evaluate directly the toxicity of these chemically complex wastes.
