dc.description.abstractOrganotin pesticides, triphenyltin acetate or hydroxide have long been used as an inexpensive method to control the population of brackish water shails Cerithidea cingulata in the pond culture of milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskal), and important food fish in the Philippines. The use of organotin pesticeds has been banned for several years now because the chemical renders the soil sterile, is nonbiodegradable and bioaccumulates, and is hazardous to humans. Despite the ban, the clandestine use of the pesticide in milkfish ponds continues to threaten the environment and humans.en
