As of , NPIC stopped creating technical pesticide fact sheets. The old collection of technical fact sheets will remain available in this archive, but they may contain out-of-date material.

Copper is used in aquaculture for a variety of purposes, including control of the blue-green algae responsible for off-flavors in culture animals, treating for certain diseases and parasites, eliminating mollusks from ponds and avoiding fouling of fish cage netting. Copper is potentially toxic, and the possible negative effects of its use in aquaculture on the environment and to food safety are a consideration in voluntary eco-label certification and buyer-purchasing programs, as well as in aquaculture regulations. Excessive exposure to copper in humans can cause nose, mouth and eye irritations, as well as headaches. Excessive copper concentrations in the environment can be toxic to plants, contaminate forage and harm livestock and other animals, and damage the soil biota. Elevated copper concentrations in water can harm fish and other aquatic life. The hour median 50 percent lethal concentration L. The maximum acceptable concentration of copper for long-term exposure to aquatic species is likely around 0.
Wednesday, February 3, Ed Bloodnick. Copper is essential to the growth of plants. Among other things, it plays a part in several enzyme processes and is key to the formation of chlorophyll. Copper Cu is one of the micronutrients needed in very small quantities by plants. The normal range in the growing medium is 0. In comparison, the ideal range for iron in the tissue is 20 times higher than that of copper.
Examining copper use in aquaculture
Because of their insolubility in water, nanoparticles have a limitation concerning toxicity experiments. The present study demonstrated a plant agar test for homogeneous exposure of nanoparticles to plant species. The effect of Cu nanoparticles on the growth of a plant seedling was studied, and bioaccumulation of nanoparticles was investigated. All tests were conducted in plant agar media to prevent precipitation of water-insoluble nanoparticles in test units. The plant species were Phaseolus radiatus mung bean and Triticum aestivum wheat. Growth inhibition of a seedling exposed to different concentrations of Cu nanoparticles was examined.
effects in wild fish and aquatic species are unclear and the subject of ongoing of chemical risk assessment: health hazards to humans, plants and animals. The effect of interactions between copper, cadmium, and zinc on metal cell binding.
Heavy metal pollution is one of the most troublesome environmental problems faced by mankind nowadays. Copper, in particular, poses serious problems due to its widespread industrial and agricultural use. Unlike other heavy metals, such as cadmium, lead, and mercury, copper is not readily bioaccumulated and thus its toxicity to man and other mammals is relatively low.
Copper has been used effectively for many years to control algae and fish parasites in freshwater and marine systems. Because copper does not discolor the water, it is a preferred treatment for use in display aquaria. Water chemistry and other environmental factors will determine how much copper will be biologically available and for how long. However, the copper concentrations required for effective treatment may be acutely toxic for some species of finfish and are lethal for most invertebrates. Chronic copper exposure will also adversely affect fish health.
Copper toxicity is a type of metal poisoning caused by an excess of copper in the body. Copperiedus can occur from eating acidic foods cooked in uncoated copper cookware, an IUD, or from exposure to excess copper in drinking water and other environmental sources. Acute symptoms of copper poisoning by ingestion include vomiting, hematemesis vomiting of blood , hypotension low blood pressure , melena black "tarry" feces , coma, jaundice yellowish pigmentation of the skin , and gastrointestinal distress. Chronic long-term copper exposure can damage the liver and kidneys. Those same protection mechanisms can cause milder symptoms, which are often misdiagnosed as psychiatric disorders.

Н-нет… Не думаю… - Голос его дрожал. Беккер склонился над. - Вам плохо. Клушар едва заметно кивнул: - Просто… я переволновался, наверное. - И замолчал.
Это было настоящее чудо.
