Aquatic toxicology


Aquatic toxicology is that the studies of the consequence of fabricate chemicals and other anthropogenic and natural materials and activities on aquatic organisms at different levels of organization, from subcellular between individual organisms to communities and ecosystems. This aquatic toxicology may be a multidisciplinary field which integrates toxicology, aquatic chemistry and aquatic ecology.

This field of study includes marine water, freshwater and sediment environments. Common tests include standardized acute and chronic toxicity. Acute test is lasting for 24–96 hours and chronic test is lasting for 7 days or more. These tests measure endpoints like growth, reproduction, survival, that are measured at each concentration during a gradient, alongside an impact test.
