I was amazed in the Seattle area they seemed better, selling different labeled fish that looked identical to me. Maybe having fishermen around helps... Or they just like confusing people with lots of different signs :P

This is a mercury in fish story from NBC news in LA.  Allison and her students analyzed 27 fish samples for mercury contents and she was featured in the story.

Globally, coal fire power generation is a major contributor of Hg in the environment.  There is only a trace amount in water.  Hg itself is not too bad, MeHg is the dangerous stuff, it gets into Algae then little fish, then big fish.  The concentration biomagnifies at each step. That's why the high mercury fish are all large predatory fish.
