Ocean fish acquire more mercury at depth

Mercury accumulation in the ocean fish we eat tends to take place at deeper depths, in part because of photochemical reactions that break down organic mercury in well-lit surface waters, according to new research from the University of Michigan and University of Hawai’i at Manoa. More of this accessible organic mercury is also being generated in deeper waters.
