Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a common model species in fish toxicology, and the zebrafish gill is potentially useful in screening waterborne pollutants. We have previously developed a gill-based ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD) assay, and proposed gill EROD activity as a biomarker for exposure to waterborne aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) agonists.
