Full diversity statistics for each locus are given in Additional file 8 and statistical differences in genetic diversity are given in Additional file 3. aHeadings in bold indicate different catchments; bEstradiol equivalents, the predicted average estrogenicity at the sample site, calculated from the predicted concentrations of E1, E2 and EE2;cTPM = two phase model for microsatellite evolution used for this test; dSource of samples; eA composite sample of fish caught at BlaEve (51.354119, -0.8584853) and BlaHaw (51.324119, -0.7665606). Effluent concentrations are an average between the two sites for statistical analysis;

fNM = not modelled. For this site there are no major upstream discharges. For statistical analysis, and average E2Eq value for sites with no major discharges was used. gThe exact locations for these sample sites are unknown. Numbers in bold indicate significance (p ≤ 0.05).
