Mercury in the food chain

When I was a kid, we broke thermometers and played with the mercury. Now we know better. According to this Orlando Sentinel story, where mercury comes from, and how it gets into the fish we eat, is still a mystery. With more than 7,000 lakes larger than an acre and 11,000 miles of rivers and streams, Florida is varied, complicated terrain. You can be sure mercury acts differently in the sandy central highlands than it does in Shark River Slough.
