Are the numbers of feminized male fish found in rivers in the United States increasing?

    Yes the numbers of feminized male fish are increasing.  Because of hormone and chemical runoff from many livestock areas, 1 and 5 male black bass fish have eggs within them.  This has also been attributed to birth control pills that have been dumped into freshwater systems.  In parts of the Shenandoah River, 100% of the Smallmouth Bass fish have been found to be intersex fish.  Another concern is that this is creating problems for humans as it spreads in the freshwater supply and affecting human hormones already.
