The synthetic estrogen 17-ethynylestradiol (EE2), a component of birth control and hormone replacement therapy, is discharged into the environment via wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents. The present study employed radiolabeled EE2 to examine impacts of temperature and salinity on EE2 uptake in male killifish (Fundulus heteroclitus). Fish were exposed to a nominal concentration of 100 ng/L EE2 for 2 h. The rate of EE2 uptake was constant over the 2 h period. Oxygen consumption rates… CONTINUE READING
