Daphnia magna toxicity testing was evaluated as a method for estimating the potential trace metals hazard to the environment. Electroplating whole effluent evaluation was used as case study... D. magna proved to be sensitive enough to Zn, Cr and to a certain extent to Ni to serve as a quick but reliable method for assessing possible human health hazard by bioconcentrated trace metals via freshwater fish consumption.
