Toxicity of Bayluscide and TFM to Tubifex tubifex: Implications for Chemical Control of the Oligochaete Host of Myxobolus cerebralis, the Causative Agent of Whirling Disease
Lampricide Residues in Sea Lamprey Larvae Carcasses recovered after 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol (TFM) or TFM/Bayluscide Stream Treatments
Lampricide concentrations in larval sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) carcasses collected following two TFM and two TFM/Bayluscide treatments were determined to support risk assessments for non-target organisms that may consume lampricide-laden carcasses. Carcasses were removed from the treated streams either immediately after completion of the treatment or 2-days post mortem. The estimated average TFM concentration in the fresh carcasses (n = 80) collected from the rivers was 4.58 µg·g-1 (SEM =1.06 µg·g-1). The average concentration of niclosamide (the active ingredient in Bayluscide) in the fresh carcasses from the two rivers treated with TFM and Bayluscide was 0.492 µg·g-1 (SEM = 0.210 µg·g-1). The mean 2-day...
Identification of chloro-nitro-trifluoromethyl-substituted dibenzo-p-dioxins in lampricide formulations of 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol: Assessment to induce mixed function oxidase activity
Field Evaluation of an Improved Solid TFM Formulation for Use in Treating Small Tributary Streams, data
This study builds upon work conducted under the Great Lakes Fishery Commission (GLFC) Technical Assistance Program that was funded to prepare and evaluate an alternative solid formulation of the lampricide 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol (TFM) in a laboratory flume. The project aligns within the lampricide theme in the Sea Lamprey Research Program by improving lampricide performance, efficacy, and safety through the development of a more environmentally compatible lampricide formulation compared to the current surfactant-based TFM bar. The study involved performing field applications of experimental TFM pellets manufactured by collaborators at Northland College (Ashland, WI). Applications were conducted on small...
Re-evaluate the accuracy of the high alkalinity range (>260 mg/L) of the pH/alkalinity sea lamprey minimum lethal prediction model as a tool to define target treatment levels for effectively controlling larval sea lampreys with the lampricide TFM: Data
Data from this study will be used to extend the current pH/ alkalinity sea lamprey MLC prediction chart used to set 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol (TFM) concentrations for treating streams to control sea lamprey populations in the Great Lakes. The current chart predicts levels of TFM required to kill 99.9% of larval sea lampreys in water with alkalinities up to 260 mg/L. Some streams in lower Michigan, however, exceed the current 260 mg/L alkalinity threshold. Treatment managers have requested an extension of the chart to an alkalinity of 300 mg/L for pHs between 8.0 and 8.5. Exposures were conducted with TFM in water at pH 8.0 and 8.5 at alkalinities 260 and 300. Differences in TFM toxicity between the two alkalinities...
