Total and Organic Mercury in Fish from Different Geographical Areas in the North Atlantic Ocean and Health Risk Assessment
Fish consumption is considered the main route of exposure to mercury for the human population. In this sense, this study analysed the total and organic mercury content present in the muscle tissue of
Distribution and Transformation of Mercury in Subtropical Wild-Caught Seafood from the Southern Taiwan Strait
TLDR
This work determined the concentrations and stable mercury isotopic compositions of 104 muscle samples collected from 38 species of seafood typically harvested from the Taiwan Shallow Fishing Ground (TSFG), Southern Taiwan Strait and provided detailed information on the sources of mercury and its transfer in the food web in offshore fishing grounds.

Tracing sources and bioaccumulation of mercury in fish of Lake Baikal--Angara River using Hg isotopic composition.
TLDR
Hg isotopic composition can be used to track the contribution of anthropogenic sources in fish from a contaminated lake, and it is demonstrated that MIF in fish samples from Bratsk Water Reservoir allow to trace anthropogenic Hg.

Bioaccumulation and Trophic Transfer of Methylmercury in Long Island Sound
TLDR
Much of the MeHg in higher trophic levels of coastal marine ecosystems, including fishes destined for human consumption, may be attributed to net sedimentary production and dietary bioaccumulation.

TLDR
The greater seafood and mercury ingestion rates of studied Asian groups compared with non-Asian groups suggest the need for specific seafood consumption advice for ethnic communities in the United States.
Assessing Sources of Human Methylmercury Exposure Using Stable Mercury Isotopes
TLDR
This work characterized Hg isotope fractionation between humans and their diets using hair samples from Faroese whalers exposed to MeHg predominantly from pilot whales and confirmed that both Δ199Hg and δ202Hg values in human hair can help identify dietary MeHG sources.

TLDR
This is the first mercury isotope study on high altitude lake ecosystems that demonstrated specific isotope fractionations of mercury under extreme environmental conditions.
