Description

In waters across the globe, an endocrine disrupter-related increase in the feminization of male fish has been observed. Bisphenol-A (BPA), farm runoff, and soil contaminants from wastewater treatment plants can increase aquatic endocrine disrupter concentration. Three replications of four 42-liter tanks with BPA concentrations of 0.0, 0.2, 2.0, and 20.0 parts per billion (ppb) were run for 1 week. Eggs were collected on day 7 after a 14:10 hour light:dark cycle. The ANOVA among BPA concentrations was significant (P

>85%; PD. rerio.
