Purpose

Acute toxicity tests were conducted in support of research focused on developing a biosecurity protocol to mitigate impacts of alien invasive crayfish at fish hatcheries. Documented impacts of crayfish introductions include habitat alteration, fishery collapse, extirpation of threatened and endangered and other native crayfishes, disease and parasite introduction, and economic damage. Data associated with laboratory studies were collected to determine whether chemical control for alien invasive crayfish would be practical at fish hatcheries. Tests investigated whether pesticide formulations were lethal to crayfish without causing adverse effects to hatchery fish species. Research also investigated whether pesticides could be removed from treatment water within an hour of dosing which would then prevent the release of pesticides into receiving waters during fish stockings. Data will assist hatchery managers, state agencies, and regulatory agencies determine potential risk to nontarget organism and humans when considering chemical use permits and in the development of best management practices to control invasive crayfish.
