HRI Science Seminar Series - "Mercury Accumulation in Fish and Shellfish from the Northern Gulf of Mexico"

Mercury (Hg) is a pervasive global pollutant that is well known to bioaccumulate in marine organisms and biomagnify in marine food webs, so top predators including tunas, swordfish, and sharks have the highest tissue concentrations. This seminar will discuss Hg concentrations in shellfish, bay fishes, offshore pelagic fishes, and sharks caught along the Texas coast in relation to biological variables.
