The chronic treatment of early-life-stages of fish with glutaraldehyde resulted in a NOEC of 1.6 mg a.i./L.
An Early Life-Stage toxicity test was conducted with rainbow trout
(Oncorhynchus mykiss) according to OECD Guideline 210 (BASF AG
52FO447/975114). As prescribed by the guideline, fertilized eggs of
rainbow trout were exposed under flow-through conditions to the
following concentrations of glutaraldehyde 50%: 0.32, 1.0, 3.2 and 10.0
mg/L for 97 days. The test parameters were survival, time to hatch and
swim-up, toxic signs and abnormalities as well as body weight and length.
The chronic treatment of early-life-stages of fish with
glutaraldehyde resulted in mortality and in a slight delay in the start
of hatch at nominal test concentration of 10 mg/L glutaraldehyde;
therefore, the NOEC was 3.2 mg/L. Referring to the active ingredient
glutaraldehyde as such (48.15% in the test substance), the NOEC- and
LOEC values are 1.6 mg a.i./L and 5 mg a.i./L, respectively.
Conclusion: The chronic treatment of early-life-stages of fish
with glutaraldehyde resulted in a NOEC of 1.6 mg a.i./L.
