GLRPPR Sector Resource: Hold the Mercury: How to Avoid Mercury When Buying Fish

Title:
Hold the Mercury: How to Avoid Mercury When Buying Fish

Abstract:
Hold the Mercury includes the results of mercury tests on 94 fish samples collected by Oceana staff and volunteers from sushi bars and grocery stores from cities across the country. The high mercury levels found in fresh tuna and sushi as well as swordfish demonstrate the need to post the Food and Drug Administration's advice about mercury in seafood at grocery stores.
