Acute toxicity of phosphate fertilizer to Tilapia Zillii fingerlings

The acute toxicity of phosphate fertilizer on the survival level of Tilapia Zillii fingerlings was determined in 96hr static bioassay. The fish were exposed to different phosphate fertilizer concentrations. During the exposure period, there were frequent attempts at jumping out of the tank, loss of equilibrium, agitated swimming, air gulping and finally death.
