Summary

This dataset provides individual measurements of toxicity and water quality data used to calculate means reported in the associated publication. The objectives of the present study were to (1) refine test conditions for improving mussel survival and growth in a long-term feeding study, (2) evaluate chronic toxicity of NaCl and KCl to fatmucket under traditional test conditions outlined in ASTM (ASTM 2017) and the refined test conditions, and (3) assess the influences of test durations, starting ages of organisms, and the presence of sand substrate on the sensitivity of juvenile fatmucket to NaCl in chronic exposures under refined test conditions. Multiple tests were conducted to determine the chronic toxicity of sodium chloride (NaCl) [...]
