Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus)

Detailed Description

Laboratory study shows that both uptake and elimination of selected pharmaceuticals within bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) tissues is rapid indicating that persistence in bluegills in the environment is likely to be low except in those fish that reside downstream from a consistent, substantial, contaminant source.
