Description of key information

Two key studies are available for the short-term toxicity of CS2 to fish. Both studies were carried out in closed systems, with Poecilia reticulata.

In one study a 96-h LC50 of 3 mg/L was found, in the other the 96-h LC50 was 4 mg/L.

Other studies were carried out in open systems, allowing CS2 to evaporate, and are therefore not reliable to derive an endpoint for CS2.

Additional information

The lowest 96-h LC50 of CS2 for fish is 3 mg/L.
