    Of course freshwater fish are going to have higher contamination - smaller solvent volume for the inorganic mercury salts than with the ocean. And, as the inorganic mercury is methylated once it is absorbed by a fish, if the fish is a fatty fish, the organomercury compound will be stored in its flesh. Other fresh water fish are much lower in risk as they have less organomercury stored.

    The Clean Water Act (federal) addresses this but not nearly enough, so the states (particularly the Great Lakes states) are trying to pick up the slack.

    I hate fish!

    Thank goodness I am allergic to seafood because I can convince others that eating fish is dangerous for me... even freshwater fish. :D

    Then take omega-3 supplements and/or eat more nuts. That stuff is quite good for you.

    That's why I prefer getting my mercury in shot form. Of course you could just find some old thermometers and bite off the ends.

    My brother got mercury poisoning from eating too much fish. Canned tuna is loaded. Moderate consumption is ok, not body nazi fish consumption (which is what he did). Dumb. Eat a cow. He's still suffering effects from it.

    Eating fish on Fridays? Only during Lent.

    Neurological, likely. Organomercury poisoning is brutal.
