The CL50 values were determined for the fish Lepomis

Only three species, Black Bullhead (Ameiurus melas), Central Mudminnow (Umbra limi), and Green Sunfish (Lepomis
cyanellus), were collected from more than three of the seven locations sampled.
The bluegill sunfish Lepomis
macrochirus, belonging to the Centrarchidae family, has become economically important as a sport and a food fish (Janssen, 1974; Morris and Mischke, 2003).
