Aquatic Toxicology

Aquatic toxicology can be defined as the development, application, and validation of methods to assess the effects of contaminants on the environment. It also includes study of numerous factors like degraded water quality, and other environmental stressors on aquatic organisms. Aquatic toxicology research focuses on the bioaccumulation and toxicity of contaminants from water, sediment and food. Aquatic toxicology measures physical, chemical, and biological factors affecting these processes; and relationships between responses to contaminants. These factors together are observed in the laboratory and those observed in contaminated aquatic ecosystems. Aquatic toxicology studies include standardization of acute and chronic toxicity test methods, sediment toxicity and dietary assessments, and contaminant sensitivity studies of at-risk species of concern including fish, amphibians and mollusks.
