Exposure-related effects of Zequanox on juvenile lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) and lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush)
The environmental fate, persistence, and point-source discharge of traditional molluscicidal compounds led to the development of an alternative biomolluscicide, Zequanox. Previous studies evaluated the efficacy and non-target animal safety of Zequanox in laboratory, mesocosm, and field enclosure studies. One study indicated sensitivity of salmonid species and lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens Rafinesque 1817) following exposure to Zequanox, however, the exposures were not conducted in a manner consistent with the product label. This laboratory study evaluated sublethal and lethal impacts of Zequanox on lake sturgeon and lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush Walbaum in Artedi, 1792) following exposures that were conducted...
