Description of key information

Comparison of the Susceptibility of 11 Freshwater Species to 8 Chemical Compounds. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Long-term EC10, LC10 or NOEC for soil dwelling arthropods:
100 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

Culex pipiens were exposed to sodium bromide in test waters for 25 days in a semi-static toxicity test. Observations of mortality and development were used to determine the LOEC and NOEC values. The 25 day NOEC was found to be 100 mg/L sodium bromide based on both of the observation criteria, mortality and development.
