Global Mercury Hotspots

New evidence reveals mercury contamination regularly exceeds health advisory levels in humans and fish worldwide.

This report, an IPEN and BRI collaborative effort, is the first of its kind to identify global biological mercury hotspots. These hotspots are of particular concern to human populations and the ecosystems on which they depend.

The report was originally published in January 2013 (and the Spanish translation below reflects that original version), but was updated in September in preparation for the Mercury Treaty Diplomatic Conference held in Japan in October, 2013.
