Additional information

Review of toxicity test results for long-term exposure of octylphenol to fish resulted in a key study of reliable data by Wenzel et al.,(2001) with the freshwater fish Danio rerio.  The key study byWenzel et al.,(2001) provided two endpoint NOEC values at a 78 day exposure that included 0.012 mg octylphenol/L for inhibition of reproduction and >0.035 mg octylphenol/L for survival of Danio rerio.
