Great Lakes Mercury Connections: The Extent and Effects of Mercury Pollution in the Great Lakes Region
The findings from a binational scientific study indicate that efforts to control mercury pollution in the Great Lakes region have resulted in substantial and measurable improvements and that additional emissions controls will have multiple benefits for fish, wildlife, and people who consume fish from the Great Lakes region. However, mercury pollution remains a major concern in this region and the scope and intensity of the problem is greater than had been previously recognized. Biodiversity Research Institute and its collaborating research partners are actively addressing the need to continue mercury studies in areas most at risk and to convey this information to policy makers and regulators who are charged with the stewardship of our natural resources.
