The Short-Term Toxicity of Two Toxicants to Artemia Nauplii

Authors: Melahat TOĞULGA

Abstract: In this study, the short-term toxicities of sodium lauryl sulphate (an anionic detergent) and potassium dichromate on instar I and mixed instar II-III nauplii populations of Artemia were investigated. The comparisons between our results and the ARC-test (Artemia Reference Center) protocol show our experiments to be acceptable for acute toxicity standardization.

Keywords: Artemia nauplii, anionic detergent (SLS), toxicity.
