Additional information

There is comprehensive data on the toxicity of 2 -(2 -ethoxethoxy)ethanol to fish covering multiple species and both fresh and salt water. The most reliable study is one that used a flow through methodology to examine the 96h acute toxicity in 6 freshwater species. In all but one of these, the LC50 was found to be in the approximate range 10000 to 20,000mg/l. The one exception was Chanel Catfish where the LC50 was established as 6010mg/l. All other 96 hour studies were carried out using static testing. All established LC50's greater than 10,000mg/l, including in a single saltwater species.
