Endocrine Disrupting Compounds (EDCs): The Risks for Aquatic Fauna

Many natural and synthetic compounds like fungicides, plasticizers, phytoestrogens and xenoestrogens released into the aquatic environment from sewage discharges, agricultural runoffs and industrial effluents can lead to endocrine disruption in exposed species of fish. These endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) exert
