Aquatic Toxicology

In aquatic toxicology, test animals are poikilothermic, i.e., they are cold-blooded; their body temperature is variable and usually rely on environmental temperature; thus toxicity may not be sufficiently predictable. In mammalian toxicology, the ‘dose’ of a test chemical can be calculated directly and accurately, and administered by a number of routes. But in aquatic toxicology, the ‘dose’ is identified only in terms of the concentration of the chemical in water and the dimension of exposure to it; the actual ‘absorbed dose’ is sometimes determined experimentally using bio-concentration and metabolic studies.
