Default Shrimps on Prozac

I admit the title might be a little too funny. But a study cited in National Geographic has found that prozac and other antidepressant drugs are altering the behavior of shrimps and makes them easy prey. Prozac, it seems makes them more bold and daring, getting them to swim towards a bright area in the water where they can be easily seen by predators, rather than be safe in dark corners!

Hmmmn, that is bad for shrimps then. But I'm sure that other water life forms are also affected. Especially since these drugs are getting flushed down waterworks!

Yup, even fish gets on erratic behavior due to the increased sensitivity to serotonin.
