The special study was conducted to determine the acute toxicity of Alpha-TNT to bluegills and to determine if water temperature or hardness affected the toxicity level. Results LC50s ranged from 2.3 - 2.8 mg1 of Alpha-TNT for the different test conditions. It was found that temperature significantly affected the toxicity of Alpha-TNT while hardness did not. It is recommended that additional acute toxicity studies be performed on a different fish species, on a higher aquatic invertebrate, and on an algal species. Author
