Summary

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 consistent with [...]

Purpose

The purpose of the study was to assess the exposure-related effects of Zequanox on juvenile lake sturgeon and lake trout. The data were collected to quantitate Zequanox exposure, measure rates of mortality, observe sublethal impacts including histology and growth (length and weight), monitor water quality throughout, and to ultimately determine if Zequanox had any adverse impacts on juvenile lake sturgeon and lake trout.
