Significant estrogenic effects were not
found in male flounder (Platichthys flesus) in the open sea or in
estuaries. Minor to moderate estrogenic effects were observed in bream
(Abramis brama) in major inland surface waters. The prevalence of
feminizing effects in male fish is largest in small regional surface
waters that are strongly influenced by potential hormone-disrupting
compounds. High concentrations of plasma vitellogenin and an increased
prevalence of ovotestes occurred in wild male bream from a small river
receiving large amounts of effluent from a sewage treatment plant.
