Description of key information

The test results for acute toxicity of L-arginine to fish were: LC50 = 2.8 g/l; LC 100 = 5.6 g/l; NOEC (mortality) = 1.8 g/l; NOEC (condition) = 1.0 g/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water fish

Fresh water fish
Effect concentration:
2.8 g/L

Additional information

A limit test according to OECD 203 did not show any adverse effects to fish at a test concentration of 1 g/L L-arginine. A subsequent test with L-arginine according to OECD 203 with higher test concentrations showed the following results: LC50 = 2.8 g/l; LC 100 = 5.6 g/l; NOEC (mortality) = 1.8 g/l; NOEC (condition) = 1.0 g/l.
