Notes

Abstract: This presentation discusses research on links between mercury and liver damage in wild fish populations. Mercury is neurotoxic to humans. Laboratory studies have demonstrated effects on fish survival, fertility, development, and behavior. No studies have demonstrated the impacts of atmospherically-deposited Hg on wild fish at ecologically-relevant levels. This presentation describes a study by the authors on whether Hg poses a threat to fish health on Isle Royale National Park (IRNP).
