Implementation of a minimal set of biological test to assess the ecotoxic
effect of effluents from landbased marine fish farms Ecotox.
The widespread use of anthelmintics has restricted the use of most chemicals, as evidenced by the occurrence of resistance, food residues and ecotoxic
action (Cezar et al., 2008).
However, it is ecotoxic
and cause chromosomal fractures and has histopathological effects like multi-organ tissue injury .
The sorption characteristics of biochar may reduce the bioavailability of undesired elements and reduce ecotoxic
effects (Karer et al.
Furthermore, many studies have provided evidence that ATL could inhibit the growth of human embryonic cells and was ecotoxic
to freshwater species.
The lead based stabilisers are classified like toxic for the reproduction, harmful, dangerous for the environment (ecotoxic
) and presenting a danger of cumulated effects .
The results suggest that the FDA assay, in combination with the soil burial test, provides a simple and reliable method for monitoring the biodegradation processes and the putative ecotoxic
effects of bioplastics in soil.

Bacterial strains capable of degrading complex hydrocarbons present in the environment have a potential to be used as an effective tool for removing ecotoxic
Concretes containing biomass ashes: Mechanical, chemical, and ecotoxic
performances, Construction and Building Materials 48: 457-463.
Nickel (II) is also found to be an embryo toxin; a teratogen which makes the removal of this ecotoxic
species a serious concern.
