Embryotoxicity of Great Lakes Lake Trout Extracts to Developing Rainbow Trout.
Entry ID: usgsbrdcerc_GreatLakeslaketrout

Abstract: Planar halogenated hydrocarbons (PHHs), such as polychlorinated
dibenzo-p-dioxins, dibenzofurans, and biphenyls are present in aquatic systems,
and are known to produce adverse effects in fish. This study investigated the
embryotoxicity of PHH mixtures through the nanoinjection of environmental
extracts into newly fertilized eggs from two strains of rainbow trout. Organic
extracts were obtained ... View entire text
