Study on Fish: Illegal drugs are reaching rivers through bathroom pipes and other waterways located in human homes. Which has a direct effect on the fish. A research has been done regarding this.
Methamphetamine Addiction on Fish Symbolic Image
Methamphetamine Drug Affects Fish: If fish live in water that contains a drug called methamphetamine, they can become addicted. This has been revealed in a research. Scientists say that when they researched it, they found unexpected adverse results in the level of fish and their population due to this change. Researchers in the Czech Republic discovered this by placing brown trout fish in a tang of water containing methamphetamine.
Methamphetamine levels were similar to those found in freshwater rivers. From this it was tried to know whether the fish could be addicted to it. Eight weeks later, the fish were put in a fresh water tank. After this, the option of two tanks was placed in front of the fish (Effects of Drugs on Fish). The fish chose methamphetamine-contaminated water for the first four days. This research has been published in the Journal of Experimental Biology.
change in fish behavior
The research found that fish that remained in methamphetamine water were less active than other fish. Researchers from the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague and the University of Southern Bohemia said: “Behavioral changes and preference for methamphetamine-contaminated water are associated with drug exposure to fish brain tissue.” Our research has revealed that the release of illegal drugs into freshwater ecosystems leads to addiction to fish. The fish and their population levels show adverse results.’
Threats to the fauna of urban areas
Research in this matter is still going on. Another expert says that even fish living in water in urban areas are not immune from social problems (Fish Getting Addicted to Methamphetamine Drug). This shows the damage done to the species. In the earlier research, it was known about the effect of drugs in polluting water. At the same time, a 2018 research said that by flushing cocaine into the river, fish called eels are becoming more active and this is also increasing their life risk.
