Abstract

The acute effects of a herbicide based on 2,4‐D on embryos and larvae of bleak, Alburnus alburnus L. exposed to concentrations of 25–3200 mg 1−1 for 12–48 hours were investigated. The 2,4‐D delayed or stopped the development of embryos in their early stages, caused behavioural changes and morphological alterations. The L.C.50 values for embryos varied between 12–9 and 15·9–4mg 1−1 and for larvae from 51·6 to 111·2mg 1−1 according to the time of exposure. The level of 2,4‐D in Lake Balaton, or similar shallow lakes, without substantial injury of the littoral fish fauna should not surpass 0·5–1·0 mg 1−1.
