Fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) embryos and larvae are frequently used in toxicology, including short-term embryo-only tests which often use small volumes of test solution. The effect that such conditions may have on Fathead minnow development has yet to be explicitly described. Here we compared rates of embryonic development in Fathead minnow embryos reared under standard light and temperature conditions with a range of possible methods. All methods yielded excellent control survival.

Based on current scientific understanding, the products of animals generated through cloning techniques that use embryonic cells, such as embryo splitting and embryonic cell nuclear transfer, are considered not to pose a food safety concern. There is generally no restriction on the marketing of either the animals produced using these techniques and their progeny, or the products or by-products of these animals, in Canada or elsewhere.

Dataset contains laboratory-studied Fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) survival when exposed to bitumen sediments from the oil sands region of northern Alberta, cut through the McMurray Formation (MF). These are the results of the toxicological exposures, when Fathead minnow embryos were exposed to water from simulated rainfall on the river sediments.
