Dr. Nora Demers, an FGCU professor, told us chemicals found in herbicides, pesticides, medications and shampoos may affect the development of some changes being seen in mosquitofish.

Demers said these changes are brought about by endocrine disruptors, which are chemicals that can impact developmental and reproductive systems in animals.
