Average Concentrations of Antidepressants in Water, Sediment, and Fish

Average concentrations of antidepressants in water, sediment, and fish neural tissue from Boulder Creek

Detailed Description

Average concentrations of antidepressants in water, sediment, and fish neural tissue from Boulder Creek just below the point where wastewater from a sewage treatment plant is discharged (USGS Site ID 400305105103901). Since concentration units differed for each sample type, the concentrations were normalized to the highest single antidepressant concentration in each sample type (highest concentration was set to equal one). The graph shows that fish selectively absorb some antidepressants more than others.
