The U.S. EPA maintains a toxicology database called AQUIRE (or AQUatic
toxicity Information REtrieval database). They also maintain a database
for Risk Assessment (ASTER) and Ecotoxicology (ECOTOX). They contain
information on aquatic life, plants and terrestrial wildlife. The
service is free to government agencies. I don't know what the cost is
to non-government. You can call them at 218-720-5602 or e-mail through:
outreach at du4500.dul.epa.gov
I hope this was of some help.
