Pharmaceuticals found in water-fish-osprey food web
from Science Nutshell
A recent U.S. Geological Survey and Baylor University study demonstrated that ospreys (Pandion haliaetus, or commonly, fish eating hawks or eagles) do not carry significant amounts of human pharmaceutical chemicals, though these chemicals are prevalent in water. This finding published in Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management is the first published study that examines the bioaccumulation of pharmaceuticals in the water-fish-osprey food web.
