Epidemiological, wildlife, and laboratory studies support the hypothesis that chemicals released into the environment through anthropogenic activities are responsible for abnormalities of reproduction and development. Although the New Bedford Harbor (NBH) killifish population has survived and reproduced successfully for >50 yr ( approximately 20 generations), fish have high body burdens of the major NBH contaminants (polychlorinated biphenyls); elevated levels of P450 aromatase B and… CONTINUE READING
