Just Published: Mercury concentrations in marine species from the Aleutian Islands

A study co-authored by WERC research faculty Lorrie Rea and Alaska Stable Isotope director Matthew Wooller investigated  mercury concentrations as well as carbon and nitrogen isotopes from fish and other marine organisms along the Aleutian chain. Mercury is a contaminant with potential health hazards at higher exposure. This study sheds new light on the regional variations of mercury concentrations in relation to food web ecology.
