The Effects of Acidity on the Uptake of Mercury in Fish

Chapter
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH)

Abstract

The effect of pH on the transformation, transport, and bioaccumulation of mercury are discussed. Through its effect on mercury retention in the water-body, and on the biomass and growth rate of aquatic organisms, low pH leads to higher mercury levels in fish. For a better understanding of mercury turnover and transport, however, greater knowledge concerning re-emission of mercury from both land and water is required.
