  4. Four EDCs (Epite, Corti*, Predn, Noreth) were not detected in all the water samples, eight EDCs were not detected in all the fish plasma samples, including 1 androgen (Tren), 3 glucocorticoids (Dexa, Predn, and Prednl), 1 estrogen (E2), 1 progestogen (Me-ace), and 2 industrial compounds (OP and NP). The measured BAFs for these 11 EDCs were not available
