Résumé

A dye process in a textile plant in southern Kentucky (USA) produces large quantities of saline waste-water which eventually enter Lake Cumberland via a municipal sewage treatment plant on Lily Creek. The impact of hypersaline conditions on two fish species native to the Cumberland River drainage system, redbelly dace (Phoxinus erythrogaster) and northern studfish (Fundulus catenatus), was assessed. These species were subjected to salinities of 0, 4, and 10‰ after which routine oxygen consumtpion values were determined. Significant correlations of salinity with oxygen consumption were demonstrated for both species with P. erythrogaster showing greater overall impact of salinity on metabolic rate.
