Significance and Use
3.1 The significance of using chemical fish toxicants is that more complete population analyses or total eradication, or both, can be accomplished. Target species can be selectively eradicated by varying concentrations. This provides a very effective tool in fisheries investigations and management programs. Water conditions (that is, pH, temperature, alkalinity, and so forth) and morphology can be limiting factors.
