Abstract This review focuses on the taxa within the class Crustacea which have been historically used in ecotoxicological testing. The taxa are evaluated for their relative sensitivity to a variety of toxicants including heavy metals, pesticides, and petroleum hydrocarbons. Included in this evaluation are the types of test methodologies, the biological endpoints measured and the life-history stages at which the tests were conducted. The significance of the crustaceans in ecotoxicological testing and hazard assessment strategies is discussed.
