Description of key information

In a 'read across' study on a sample of diesel fuel the 96hr LL50 in rainbow trout was determined to be 65 mg/l

This result is also supported by Petrotox modelling which gave a predicted value of 3.66 mg/L

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water fish

Effect concentration:

Additional information

A sample of diesel fuel was tested in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) under semi-static conditions in a 96 -hour acute test (OECD 203). The test was undertaken using water accommodated fractions. The 96hr LL50 was determined to be 65 mg/L.

A supporting QSAR study using Petrotox model is also available which predicted the LL50 value at 3.66 mg/L. Modelling is considered to be more conservative than experimental data.
