Facey, Blazer, Gasper, and Turcotte (2005) compared HSI values in rock bass, Ambloplites rupestris (Rafinesque, 1817) before and after improvements in sewage treatment and found significantly (p < 0.05) lower values after the treatment, suggesting that physiological stress in fish population decreased with reduction in exposure to pollutants.
