    Abstract

    Because of the increasing importance of evaluating the actual impact of chemical discharges on fish in receiving waters the need for a suitable apparatus for conducting in situ toxicity tests has arisen. This paper describes a simple, inexpensive, easily handled fish cage that has proven to be quite suitable for conducting in situ toxicity tests with small fish. The cages are constructed of 10-cm plastic pipe.
