Toxicity of malachite green to the larvae of Penaeus monodon
MetadataShow full item record
The toxicity of malachite green to the larvae of the jumbo tiger prawn Penaeus monodon was determined in a static bioassay. Daily larval death was directly proportional to the chemical concentration of and exposure time to the dye. Estimates of the TL50 in 24, 48, 72, and 96 h are as follows: 112.80, 30.61, 18.91 and 2.27 micrograms/l for the zoeae; 2502.65, 1105.63, 610.09 and 139.01 micrograms/l for the myses; and 2900.17, 339.28, 70.85, and 66.60 micrograms/l for the postlarvae. No adverse effects on the development and moulting of larvae were noted.
