Abstract

Fishes were exposed to chlorinated paraffins in the water. Neutron activation analysis of chlorine in lipophilic extracts from the fishes indicated a considerable uptake from water containing 0.1 and 1.0 mg chloroparaffin/l. Symptoms of neurotoxic effects were observed after about two weeks of exposure.
