Technical Abstract: Peracetic acid (PAA; also called peroxyacetic acid) is a promising new aquatic disinfectant that has also been used to treat parasites and fungus. It is registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an antimicrobial compound approved for indoor use on hard, non-porous surfaces. This study determined the acute toxicity of PAA to several fish species. The experiments were designed to provide the 24 h LC50 value for each species at approximately 23 deg C.
