Through collaborative research, the Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI) assesses emerging threats to wildlife and ecosystems, while using those findings to inform decision makers and advance environmental awareness. The BRI Center for Mercury Studies, in cooperation with ZMWG and also in advance of the INC5 session, released a report last month based on the data compiled in their Global Biotic Mercury Synthesis Database – a project that collected data about the concentrations of mercury in marine species from around the world – to identify which species of seafood can safely contribute to nutritional needs and compared this to global marine fish harvest data: Mercury in the Global Environment: Patterns of Global Seafood Mercury Concentrations and their Relationship with Human Health.
