Title : Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products in the Environment: Impacts on Fish?
Numerous pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) contaminate aquatic ecosystems.
Recent research at UOIT on PPCPs will be discussed including fish chronic toxicity studies, aquatic

application of swim bladder inflation as a biomarker of effects.
