Study of sick bass in Susquehanna cites endocrine disruptors

from Bay Journal

Hormone-altering compounds and herbicides are likely weakening the immune systems of Susquehanna River smallmouth bass, making them more susceptible to diseases, and that, in turn, has caused a population collapse for the bass, the river's most popular recreational fish, a new study has concluded. The multi-year study, which involved dozens of scientists from multiple state and federal agencies as well as universities, said that exposure to endocrine-disrupting compounds and herbicides, along with infections from parasites and pathogens, were the "most likely" reasons that few young smallmouth bass in the river have survived to become adults since 2005. more
