Acute, short-term toxicity of ZR-515 (isopropyl 11- hoxy-3, 7, ll-trimethyl-2, 4-dodecadienoate) on various aquatic organisms was studied. In the laboratory, 35organisms including Protozoa, Platyhelminthes, Rotatoria, Annelida, Arthropoda, Mollusca, Chordata, and Thallophyla were tested with technical ZH-515. Dosages used for mosquito larvae control produced no adverse effect on most of the organisms tested. In the field (artificial containers, ponds, and irrigated pastures), a slow-release formulation was used with no visible effect on most of the organisms. However, larvae of aquatic Diptera (Chironomidae, Ephydridae, Psyeodidae) showed some sensitivity.
