Description of key information

The high quality chronic freshwater database contains Pb toxicity data for ten fish species (A. sinensis; A. transmontanus; C. carpio; I. punctatus; L. macrochirus; P. promelas; S. salar; O. mykiss; S. fontanilis; S. namaycush). In total 47 different freshwater NOEC/EC10 for fish were compiled and varied between 17.8 µg dissolved Pb/L (Cyprinus carpio; endpoint: mortality) and 1558.6 µg dissolved Pb/L (Pimephales promelas; endpoint: dry weight).


The chronic toxicity database for marine fish contains toxicity data for four marine fish (Cyprinodon variegatus, Atherinops affinis, Mugil cephalus and Terapon jarbua). In total there were 7 different high-quality marine NOEC/EC10 compiled, which varied between 11.6 µg total Pb/L (Mugil cephalus) and 437 µg dissolved Pb/L (Cyprinodon variegatus).
