Resumen:

The Low Uruguay River is a bi-national watercourse shared by Uruguay and Argentina. It holds a rich aquatic biodiversity and provides resources to various human activities, including drinking water abstraction. Therefore, it is important to assess if industrial sources, such as bleached pulp mill effluents, domestic sources like untreated municipal wastewaters and/or non-point source agricultural pesticides used in soy-fields, could affect the river water quality. In this framework we studied the potential estrogenic effect of pulp mill and domestic wastewater discharges into Uruguay river on the male gonads of the Fathead minnow, and we compared it to the effect of treatment with 17ß-estradiol (E2).
