"Drugs in Water Hurt Fish and Wildlife"

	In this AP article, there is this sentence, "Meanwhile, female
fish have developed male genital organs."  To date, I have not seen any
publications that say that the females are becoming transgendered too.
Has anyone got any sources for this information?  I'm also contacting
the authors of the piece to see what their source was.
