The present studies tested the impact of the total residual chlorine in the doses of 0.1-0.5 mg/dm3 on carp with the application of the general physical effort method. The ergometric tests revealed the immediate reaction for chlorine in the water was the drop in the performance ability of fish. In the concentrations of 0.3, 0.4, 0.5 mg/dm3 the value of work diminished down to: 70.0, 45.0, and 26.6% respectively of the norm established for the fish tested in the chlorine-free water.
