Too Much Prozac Turns Minnows Into Killers
June 14, 2013
Fish swimming in water with a trace of the anti-depressant Prozac did not adopt a cheery disposition. Instead, they became edgy, aggressive and some even killed their mates.
The fish were subjected to traces of the drug by a research group at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee that examined how environmental exposure to the medication altered the behavior of fathead minnows, a common fish found throughout the Midwest.
Lead researcher Rebecca Klapper says that this experimental setup could actually be a reflection of the fishes’ reality.
