  1. My article has been published: https://www.greatlakesnow.org/2019/11/mercury-great-lakes-lake-trout-mussels-study/ Thanks to everyone who helped out!
  2. Hi, I'm a reporter working on a news story for Great Lakes Now about a recent scientific study, which found that although mercury pollution in the Great Lakes has been reduced substantially over the past few decades, most large fish, like lake trout, are still contaminated. The mercury levels in fish are not coming down as quickly as might be expected - largely because the invasion of zebra and quagga mussels has forced the fish to change their food source to prey that remain high in mercury. The paper can be found here: https://www.pnas.org/content/pnas/early/2019/10/29/1907484116.full.pdf I'm looking for someone with experience fishing on the Great Lakes who has time for a quick chat about this issue sometime in the next few days. I'm interested in how mercury contamination has affected the sport fishing community on the Great Lakes, and what some solutions might be. You can contact me at [email protected] Thanks for your help, Brian
