Abstract:
Surveys of UK rivers have shown a high incidence of sexual disruption in populations of wild roach (Rutilus rutilus) living downstream from sewage treatment works (STW). Moreover, the degree of intersex (gonads containing both male and female structural characteristics) has been correlated with the concentration of effluent in those rivers.
