Baby fish in polluted San Francisco estuary waters are stunted and deformed

Striped bass in the San Francisco Estuary are contaminated before birth with a toxic mix of pesticides, industrial chemicals and flameretardants that their mothers acquire from estuary waters and food sources and pass on to their eggs, say UC Davis researchers. The findings have implications far beyond fish, because the estuary is the water source fortwo-thirds of the people and most of the farms in California.
