The resistance, accumulation, and detoxification of metals by Chironomidae living in metal-contaminated environments was studied. Mechanisms of Chironomus metal resistance, the accumulating abilities and deposition of metals in Chironomid larvae, the passage of metals from larvae to fish, and the importance of Chironomid detoxification to the ecosystem was discussed.

Show by: The Chironomidae (informally known as chironomids, nonbiting midges, or lake flies) comprise a family of nematoceran flies with a global distribution.

They are closely related to the Ceratopogonidae, Simuliidae, and species superficially resemble mosquitoes, but they lack the wing scales and elongated mouthparts of the Class: Insecta.

Chironomid definition is - any of a family (Chironomidae) of midges that lack piercing mouthparts. Chironomids, the “non-biting midges” (Diptera: Chironomidae) are one of the most important groups of insects worldwide in freshwater, aquatic ecosystems.

They can be a large part of the diet of many fish, including several sport fishes in our lakes and streams.

Chironomidae are also important in terms of nutrient cycling and can also help in terms of removing or breaking down certain types of pollutants. The bibliography of Chironomidae literature was initiated by Ernst J. Fittkau, Friedrich Reiss and Odwin Hoffrichter almost forty years ago.

Multiple additions and corrections have been published over the years, most significantly in the many annual contributions by Odwin Hoffrichter in the Chironomus Newsletter on Chironomidae Research. Make no mistake; chironomids are of critical importance.

From personal study these insects often constitute over 50% of stillwater trout’s food intake in productive lakes. Trout consume so many of these insects, especially the larval or pupal stage, that they respond instinctively to a proper combination of presentation and pattern.
