Description of key information

The 96 h LC50 and NOAEC in Oncorhynchus mykiss were >116 and 116 mg/L, respectively.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
116 mg/L

Additional information

The acute toxicity of BPA-TA to Oncorhynchus mykiss was investigated in a study conducted using methodology equivalent to OECD 203 under GLP conditions (Vizon SciTec Inc., 2005).The study was awarded a reliability score of 2 in accordance with the criteria set forth by Klimisch et al. (1997).

Fish were exposed to nominal concentrations of 0, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 mg/L under static conditions for 96 hours.

At 96-h, no fish had died in any of the treatment groups. All surviving fish appeared normal throughout the exposure period. The LC50, based on mean measured concentrations, was >116 mg/L. Based on visual inspection of the data, the NOAEC was 116 mg/L, and the LOAEC was >116 mg/L.
