Fish Toxicology and Behavior

One investigation that we conducted long ago was on the ability of the fathead minnow to avoid toxic chemicals in the environment. Fathead minnows are an important species in aquatic toxicology research because they are easy to keep, they are common in freshwater ecosystems, and they are an important forage fish in freshwater food webs.
