ISOTOPIC AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF MERCURY IN ORGANS AND TISSUES OF FISH IN A MERCURY-POLLUTED LAKE: EVIDENCE FOR FRACTIONATION OF MERCURY ISOTOPES BY PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESSES

Abstract

Organs and tissues of whitefish and trout from mercury (Hg)-polluted Lake Ontario were analysed for Hg isotopes, methylmercury (CH3Hg+), and inorganic Hg to investigate possible mass-dependent fractionation (MDF) and mass-independent fractionation (MIF) of Hg isotopes by physiological processes of the fish. 205 more words
