Abstract

Heavy metals are commonly found in water pollutants these days. Toxicity as a result of heavy metals may adversely affect the aquatic flora and fauna. The active substance of Tributyltin oxide and Copper Sulphate is highly toxic and also damaging to a multitude of non target species. The fishes have been used for many years to determine the pollution status of water. Static bioassays were performed on fish, Rasbora daniconius to evaluate the median lethal concentrations for 24, 48, 72 and 96 hrs. The LC50 values obtained when exposed to tributyltin oxide were 0.56 ppm, 0.48 ppm, 0.36 ppm and 0.23 ppm and in copper sulphate exposed groups LC50 were 0.74 ppm, 0.66 ppm, 0.53 ppm and 0.44 ppm respectively. The results show that the LC50 values decreased with increase in exposure period. At this concentration, erratic swimming, jerky movement, thick mucous covering over the whole body surface and rapid opercular movement leaping out of water were observed during experiments. Acute toxicity bioassay studies and behavioural responses due to impact found tributyltin oxide was more toxic rather than copper sulphate.

Key Words
