MONTREAL — Are fish popping Prozac present in the water supply? That’s the surprising question raised in a study by the University of Montreal’s department of chemistry.
The study found a significant quantity of anti-depressants in the water supply around the city, affecting the fishes’ tissue and brain activity.
It says the phenomenon is likely found around many cities in the world because Montreal has a typical sewage-treatment system.
