The mercury concentrations of 35 commercial and potentially commercial fish species from Tasmanian waters were determined. Four species had mean total mercury concentrations above 0.5 mg kg-1 wet weight and in all four there were individuals with concentrations above 1.5 mg kg-1 wet weight. Two species of shark, Parascyllium ferrugineum and Cephaloscyllium laticeps (with sample sizes of 4 and 1, respectively), had total mercury concentrations above the limit of a mean of 1.0 mg kg-1 wet weight… CONTINUE READING
