Abstract: An important consideration regarding the maintenance or increase of fish populations in rice field areas in relation to Japanese encephalitis is whether the agricultural chemicals applied to rice fields are harmful to fish. This study has shown that the herbicide PCP, which is commonly used in South Korea during the rice-transplanting period, is highly toxic to Aplocheilus latipes and Zacco platypus. Both species are larvivorous and offer promise in integrated vector control. On the other hand, certain organophosphorus materials applied for rice pest control and the herbicide 2-4 D did not appear to be toxic to fish populations. / 水田地域における魚類個体群の維持と増加にとって,水田に撒布される農薬が魚に有害かどうかゞ重要である.韓国南部で田植時期に普通に使用される除草剤PCPは,Aplocheilus latipesメダカ及びZacco platypusオイカワに対して強い毒性を示す.両種は蚊の幼虫を捕食するので,蚊の総合防除に当り考慮されるべきものである.一方,稲作害虫に対して撒布される有機燐剤や除草剤2-4Dは魚類個体群に有毒ではないようであった.
