Summary

Attributes regarding the acute toxicity of sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium chloride (KCl) to larvae (glochidia) or juveniles of a unionid mussel (fatmucket, Lampsilis siliquoidea) at various water hardness and in the presence of other major ions.

Purpose

Freshwater mussels are one of the most imperiled groups of animals in the world. However, many water quality criteria and other environmental guidelines do not include data for mussels, in part because mussel test methods are comparatively new and data may not have been available when criteria and guidelines were derived. The objectives of the study were to refine test conditions to evaluate the acute toxicity of sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium chloride (KCl) to larvae (glochidia) or juveniles of a unionid mussel (fatmucket, Lampsilis siliquoidea) and the potential influences of water hardness and other major ions on the acute toxicity of NaCl.
