The zebra fish is a freshwater fish belonging to the
 minnow family of the order Cypriniformes. – Native to South Asia.

The Zebra fish is gaining popularity in basic behavioral brain research,
behavior genetics, and in translational studies because it offers
a cheap and efficient alternative to rodents and guinea pigs.

Sodium fluoride will negatively affect the circulatory
systems, as well as the liver of a zebrafish, possibly 
leading to liver scarring and liver failure. [More]



Excessive fluoride in natural water ecosystem has the potential to detrimentally affect thyroid endocrine system, but little is known of such effects or underlying mechanisms in fish. In the present study, we evaluated the effects of fluoride on growth performance, thyroid histopathology, thyroid hormone levels, and gene expressions in the HPT axis in male zebrafish (Danio rerio) –  See full text below ↓ ↓ ↓

Biologists at the University of Ottawa have discovered exposing
 embryos to Prozac [fluoride] affected the aquatic creatures’
ability to manage
 stress for generations, prompting a call for
further research
 into the lasting effects of
anti-depressants on humans.

Professor Paul Engelking says fish and fluoride don’t mix.

Millions of salmon have instinctively know this for thousands
of years,
 that is why they go to so much trouble
to swim up rivers to
 lay their eggs
in fluoride free water.

(Sea water contains fluoride.)
