      Avian mercury exposure and toxicological risk across western North America: A synthesis. Joshua T. Ackerman,a,* Collin A. Eagles-Smith,b Mark P. Herzog,a C. Alex Hartman,a Sarah H. Peterson,a David C. Evers,c Allyson K. Jackson,d John E. Elliott,e Stacy S. Vander Pol,f and Colleen E. Bryanf.   One of the biggest threats to our precious fisheries and aquatic resources is the spread of invasive species. Invasive species management is one of the toughest sectors because the immediate discovery of foreign species requires an investigation of their previous native range, understanding of their biology and ecology, and implementing protocols to eradicate them.

      Mercury’s Silent Toll On the World’s Wildlife Scientists are only beginning to understand the impacts of mercury contamination on birds, fish, and other wildlife populations. But what they are finding is alarming — even low levels can cause harm, and chronic exposure has unexpected and troubling effects.   Mercury, DDE, and PCB in the avian fauna in Norway – Holt, Holt; Frøslie, Frøslie; Norheim, Norheim Mercury and persistent chlorinated hydrocarbons in owls Strigiformes and birds of prey Falconiformes collected in Norway during the period –

      4 Mercury concentrations in selected biological and nonbiological materials collected from Minamata Bay, Japan, and environs. Concentrations are in mg Hg/kg (ppm) fresh weight (FW), or dry weight (DW) 5 Mercury concentrations in water and sediments 6 Mercury concentrations in field collections of selected species of flora and fauna.   The Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Defense Fund, and other organizations advise us to limit mercury by following these guidelines. DON’T eat the “big four” fish with the highest levels of mercury: king mackerel, shark, swordfish, and tilefish. DO eat up to 12 ounces a week of low-mercury fish and shellfish.

PCBs are carcinogens that were banned back in the 70s, but they are resistant. Decades later, PCBs are still in our environment because they don't degrade. They just hang around and get consumed, and are then carried around in the fat of the animals that consume them.
