Lethal And Sub-Lethal Effects Of Copper To The African Catfish (Clarias Gariepinus) Juveniles

Lethal and sub-lethal effects of copper on Clarias gariepinus were studied using a 96-hour static bioassay.  Copper (as copper chloride, CuCl2 . H2O) was used to prepare the stock solution from which five standard concentrations 0.0, 1.8, 3.2, 5.6, and 10.0 mg/L were prepared (coded A – E).  15 juvenile C. gariepinus fish having a mean weight and length 5.8g and 18 cm respectively were used. The 96-hour LC50  estimated using the logarithm method were 0.6, 0.71 and 0.7 mg...
