Chemical Carcinogenesis

Many chemicals that are carcinogens in mammals are also known to cause fish neoplasms. Various aspects of chemical carcinogenicity in fish have been reviewed by Meyers and Hendricks (1982), Hendricks (1982), Black (1984), Couch and Harshbarger (1985), Metcalfe (1989), Black and Baumann (1991), GESAMP (1991), Calabrese et al. (1992), Moore and Myers (1994), Hawkins et al. (1995), Bailey et al. (1996) and Bunton (1996). Our review includes selected groups of chemicals that have been clearly associated with neoplasms of wild or hatchery fish or that have been used extensively in laboratory experiments.
