The contamination of the aquatic environment has raised concerns in the scientific community and regulatory authorities. Given the large number of xenobiotics, for most of them there is a striking deficit in the literature concerning their adverse effects on aquatic organisms. Citalopram (CTR) is a worldwide highly consumed antidepressant which has demonstrated incomplete removal by conventional wastewater treatment, hence resulting in the contamination of aquatic ecosystems. Consequently, it is urgent to evaluate its potentially toxic effects on aquatic organisms.
