    Within the United States, Kentucky’s native freshwater fish diversity is exceeded only by Alabama and Tennessee. This high diversity of native fishes corresponds to an abundance of water bodies and wide variety of aquatic habitats across the state – from swift upland streams to large sluggish rivers, oxbow lakes, and : Barbara Whitener.   Eating fish from America’s streams is becoming increasingly dangerous, according to a new study by the U.S. Geological examining almost streams from across the country, scientists concluded that 25% of fish contained dangerous levels of mercury for humans, and more than two-thirds had levels considered unsafe for animals to .

Sediment mercury can be converted by microorganisms into methylmercury, a highly toxic chemical that builds up in fish, shellfish and animals that eat fish. At high levels of methylmercury exposure, harmful effects on these animals can include reduced reproduction, slower growth and development, abnormal behavior, and even death.

Mercury (Hg) was examined in top-predator fish, bed sediment, and water from streams that spanned regional and national gradients of Hg source strength and other factors thought to influence methylmercury (MeHg) bioaccumulation.

Th e objectives of this report were to describe the nationwide occurrence and distribution of mercury in fi sh tissue and evaluate mercury in streambed (bed) sediment and stream water.

Methods. Mercury in fish, bed sediment, and water from streams across the United States, Mercury (Hg) was examined in top-predator fish, bed sediment, and water from streams that spanned regional and national gradients of Hg source strength and other factors thought to influence methylmercury (MeHg) bioaccumulation.

Fish sampled from a total of streams across the United States of America between the years of and were found to contain levels of mercury higher than those deemed safe for human ingestion.

Introduction. Aquatic bed sediment is an important zone of mercury (Hg) methylation, the microbially-mediated process whereby inorganic Hg is converted to the more bioavailable form monomethyl mercury (MeHg) (Morel et al., ).Once converted to MeHg, this powerful neurotoxin can enter the food web and biomagnify up the food chain to concentrations that Cited by:   “Mercury in Fish, Bed Sediment, and Water from Streams Across the United States, –” And then there is water pollution related to nuclear bomb testing.

This has been studied by various state and federal agencies for decades, but recently hit the main stream press. Here is the LA Times story. In its recent publication, “Data on Mercury in Water, Bed Sediment, and Fish from Streams Across the United States, –,” (pdf) the United States Geological Survey (USGS), a division of the Department of the Interior (DOI), released information related to mercury contamination in streams and rivers across the country.

The USGS study’s findings are alarming: every fish. August - A landmark USGS study titled Mercury in Fish, Bed Sediment, and Water from Streams Across the United States, –, found mercury contamination in every fish sampled in streams across the country.

Email: D.P.,Mercury in fish, bed sediment, and water from streams across the United States, U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report   A national dataset on concentrations of mercury in fish, compiled mainly from state and federal monitoring programs, was used to evaluate trends in mercury (Hg) in fish from US rivers and lakes.

Trends were analyzed on data aggregated by site and by state, using samples of the same fish species and tissue type, and using fish of similar lengths. Site Cited by: Fish Bioaccumulation Factors (BAFs; ratios of mercury (Hg) in fish (Hg fish) and water (Hg water)) are used to develop total maximum daily load and water quality criteria for Hg-impaired applications require representative Hg fish estimates and, thus, are sensitive to sampling and data-treatment methods.
