Temperature effect on the elimination of pentachlorophenol, hexachlorobenzene and mir
By A.J. Niimi, V. Palazzo
Water Research, Volume 19, Issue 2, 1985, Pages 205-207, ISSN 0043-1354, DOI: 10.1016/0043-1354(85)90201-5.
The elimination rates of pentachlorophenol, hexachlorobenzene and mirex were estimated in rainbow trout that were held at 4, 12 and 18[degree sign]C for 120 days following a single oral exposure. The results suggested temperature could become an important environmental variable in deriving a coefficient for the elimination component of a contaminant dynamics model. This response would be most applicable for those substances that are eliminated relatively rapidly, and those models that simulate the contaminant dynamics of fish in its natural environment.
