A Study Of The Comparative Use Of Different Species Of Fish In The Toxicity Bioassay Of Petroleum Refinery Effluent

Fish have been used as test animals in pollution abatement programs since the inception of bioassay research. Many kinds of fish have been used in the bioassay tests. The kinds used at times have been selected merely on availability factors and not necessarily on a basis of adaptation of the fish to bioassay tests. This paper presents a comparison of four different species of fish used as test animals in a series of toxicity bioassays of petroleum refinery effluents.
