1. Supplementary methods Gas chromatography−tandem mass spectrometry protocol for the analysis of trace levels of fluoxetine in water. 2. Supplementary tables Table S1. Sperm quality parameters measured with Computer Assisted Sperm Analysis (CASA). Table S2. Summary of statistical models. Table S3. Sperm quality measures in control (0 ng/L; n = 51), low-fluoxetine-exposed (30 ng/L; n = 50) and high-fluoxetine-exposed (380 ng/L; n = 53) males. ANCOVA results presented are for the effect of fluoxetine treatment on each response variable. 3. Supplementary figure Figure S1. Relationship between total sperm count (×106) and standard length (mm) of control (0 ng/L; n = 32), low-fluoxetine (30 ng/L, n = 29) and high-fluoxetine (380 ng/L, n = 29) males. In each panel, points indicate measurements for individual fish within the corresponding treatment group. Lines indicate the fitted relationship between standard length and sperm count for the focal treatment (black line) and, for reference, the other treatments (grey lines).
