Title:  Bioaccumulation potential of 4''-epi-(Methylamino)-4''-deoxyavermectin B1a Benzoate (Emamectin Benzoate) in Bluegill sunfish.
Authors:  Chukwudebe AC, Andrew N, Drottar K, Swigert J, Wislocki PG
Drug:  Emamectin Benzoate
Fish species:  Bluegill
Date:  1996
t1/2-hr:  94
est:  est
Sample:  whole body
Ave Weight (gm):  2
Ave Water temp (°C):  22
Water:  Freshwater
Dosage:  1.6 ug/l 28 d
Route:  BATH
Comments:  Steady state concentration reached by 21 days. Residue levels plateaued by 21 d=94 ug/kg. Residue at 28 d= 90 Emamectin Benzoate (3H). Equilbrium bioconc. Factor = 80, indicating unlikely to biomagnifiy in the food chain.
