Mercury bioaccumulation increases with latitude in a coastal marine fish (Atlantic silverside, Menidia menidia).

Can J Fish Aquat Sci 2017 Jul 30;74(7):1009-1015. Epub 2016 Nov 30.

Human exposure to the neurotoxic methylmercury (MeHg) occurs primarily via the consumption of marine fish, but the processes underlying large-scale spatial variations in fish MeHg concentrations [MeHg], which influence human exposure, are not sufficiently understood. We used the Atlantic silverside (), an extensively studied model species and important forage fish, to examine latitudinal patterns in total Hg [Hg] and [MeHg]. Both [Hg] and [MeHg] significantly increased with latitude (0. Read More

Seasonal shift in the effect of predators on juvenile Atlantic salmon () energetics.

Can J Fish Aquat Sci 2011 Nov;68(12):2080-2089

Department of Biological Sciences, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH 03755, USA.

Predator effects on prey populations are determined by the number of prey consumed and effects on the traits of surviving prey. Yet, effects of predators on prey traits are rarely evaluated in field studies. We measured the effects of predators on energetic traits (consumption and growth rates) of juvenile Atlantic salmon () in a large-scale field study. Read More
