Title: Investigation of reversibility of effects of strontium-90 and metaphos on Cyprinus carpio

Abstract

The question of reversibility of the toxic effects of biocidal agents (return to original physiological state) is quite important to the description of extent of toxicity thereof, as well as predicting the outcome of fish poisoning. The answer to this question would make it possible to regulate fishing in commercial fishing regions. In the few studies of reversibility of pathological processes an experimental set-up is used, according to which the tested fish are exposed to toxic solutions for a short time, usually a few hours. However, at the present time, research on the chronic effects of pollutants has become particularly important in marine toxicology and ecology. For this reason, we undertook a study of the reversibility of toxic effects of strontium-90; the organophosphorus pesticide metaphos and a binary mixture of these compounds was performed.
