Abstract Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada, is located near two closed gold mines. Elevated arsenic concentrations reported in fish are a public health concern. We collected 180 samples of three species of commonly consumed fish in 2013–2018 and analyzed arsenic species, including inorganic arsenic (As(III) and As(V)), monomethylarsonate (MMA), dimethylarsinic acid (DMA), and arsenobetaine. The average total arsenic concentration in fish muscle tissue was 2.30 ± 1.72 µg/g dry weight… Expand
