Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
Static acute toxicity test according to OECD TG 203 conditions with Leuciscus idus melanotus: LC50 (96h) = 0.4 mg/L (nominal)
Executive summary:

Static acute toxicity test according to OECD TG 203 conditions with Leuciscus idus melanotus. The test meets the validity criteria of the guideline. No analytical monitoring was made. Therefore the test results are based on nominal concentration.

LC50 (96h) = 0.4 mg/L

Lowest concentration with 100 % mortality: 1.0 mg/L

Highest concentration with 0 % mortality: 0.1 mg/L
