Hepatic Mixed Function Oxidase Induction in Fish as an Environmental Monitoring Technique - Reference Methods For Marine Pollution Studies No. 60

United Nations Environment Programme (1992)

This Reference Method was designed to provide the user with reliable techniques for the determination of certain specific biological effects of chemical contaminants. This is the first in a series of techniques which are a product of the work of the IOC/UNEP/IMO Group of Experts on the Effects of Pollution (GEEP). GEEP has tested each of these techniques in a series of experimental workshops in temperate and tropical conditions. The techniques offer the pollution scientist a sensitive tool for examining the effect of pollutants at sub-acute levels and provide a stronger scientific basis for marine pollution assessments than "traditional" experimental studies of acute toxicity.
