What Happens When Fish go on “The Pill” and Other Pharmaceuticals?
Time: 7:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Location: Gzowski College, Room 114
About: The annual Schindler Lecture in Aquatic Science welcomes Dr. Karen Kidd of McMaster University. It appears that the pharmaceuticals that we use – pain killers, birth control, antiepileptic drugs, antibiotics, heart medications, etc. – and excrete are not completely broken down during the treatment of municipal wastewaters. These drugs are found in rivers and lakes and some affect the health of fish and other aquatic life. For example, estrogens in the birth control pills can feminize male fish, resulting in the production of eggs and reproductive failure. This talk will describe how commonly-used medications affect aquatic life and what can be done to reduce the risks they pose to our aquatic ecosystems.
