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.
