Abstract A model based on partition coefficient was developed for predicting subchronic toxicities of selected chemicals to fish. Early life stage tests were conducted under flow-through conditions using fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) as test organisms. Embryos, larvae and juveniles were continuously exposed to chemicals for a total of 31 to 33 d. Test endpoints included egg hatchability, incidence of developmental abnormalities, survival and growth. The 'chronic value' for each test was a point estimate of the maximum acceptable toxicant concentration (MATC), and was determined as the geometric mean of the highest test concentration producing no effect and the lowest concentration significantly (p
