A HESI workshop on “Alternatives to Chronic Fish Toxicity Testing” was held in Paris, France on October 25-26 2023, attended by 35 multi-sector scientists from 12 different countries. The workshop was aimed at developing a strategy to guide alternative approaches for the assessment of chronic toxicity to fish, with a focus on how new science and approaches can be effectively used to improve our ability to protect the environment from the potential chronic impacts of chemicals.
As follow-up from this workshop, specific topics/projects will be considered by expert work groups. The list below highlights some of the key messages representing new lines of thought regarding alternatives to chronic fish ecotoxicity testing:
