Hormone-Mimicking Chemicals Harm Fish – And Their Unexposed Offspring by Brian Bienkowski

Fish exposed to endocrine-disrupting compounds pass on health problems to future generations, including deformities, reduced survival, and reproductive problems, according to a new study.
The study, published in Environmental Science and Technology, is the first of its kind in a fish that can live in freshwater, brackish water or salt water, and suggests that compounds in pesticides and birth control that pollute waterways are not only harming fish living there now, but their offspring and the subsequent generation as well.
The results are troublesome as the negative effects seen in fish offspring – including reduced survival and reproduction problems – could lead to population level declines over time.
