Simple analysis of total mercury and methylmercury in seafood using heating vaporization atomic absorption spectrometry. This study aimed to develop a simpler method for determining total mercury (T-Hg) and methylmercury (MeHg) in biological samples by using methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) in the degreasing step.
The fat in the samples was extracted by MIBK to the upper phase. T-Hg transferred into the water phase. This was followed by the extraction of MeHg from the water phase using HBr, CuCl2 and toluene. The MeHg fraction was reverse-extracted into L-cysteine-sodium acetate solution from toluene. The concentrations of T-Hg and MeHg were determined by heating vaporization atomic absorption spectrometry.
NRDC - JULY 2016 - CALCULATIONS FOR MERCURY IN SEAFOOD. PHYS_ORG 20/02/17 Fluorescence method detects mercury contamination in fish. Researchers from the University of Burgos (Spain) have developed a fluorescent polymer that lights up in contact with mercury that may be present in fish.
High levels of the metal were detected in samples of swordfish and tuna. According to the conclusions of another Spanish study, mercury exposure is linked to reduced foetal and placental growth in pregnant women.

GENEVA ¦ 24 May 2014 -The 67th World Health Assembly closed today, after adopting more than 20 resolutions on public health issues of global importance.
“This has been an intense Health Assembly, with a record-breaking number of agenda items, documents and resolutions, and nearly 3 500 registered delegates,” said Dr Margaret Chan, WHO’s Director-General. “This is a reflection of the growing number of complexity of health issues, and your deep interest in addressing them.” A number of the Health Assembly resolutions were approved today on the following issues: Antimicrobial drug resistance The delegates recognized their growing concern of antimicrobial resistance and urged governments to strengthen national action and international collaboration.
As requested in the resolution, WHO will develop a draft global action plan to combat antimicrobial resistance, including antibiotic resistance for presentation to the World Health Assembly for approval next year.

Science of The Total Environment Volume 533, 15 November 2015, Modeling tribal exposures to methyl mercury from fish consumption. Open Access Highlights The paper identifies key factors of methyl mercury (MeHg) exposure MeHg exposures from fish in tribes are much higher than the US general population ~ 50% of MeHg dietary exposures can be reduced just by avoiding some fishes with high MeHg Abstract Exposure assessment and risk management considerations for tribal fish consumption are different than for the general U.S. population because of higher fish intake from subsistence fishing and/or from unique cultural practices.
Graphical abstract Exposure sensitivity analyses reducing average fish intake for different scenarios: As much as ~ 50% of MeHg dietary exposures can be reduced just by replacing several species of fish with high MeHg concentration (e.g., walleye, bowfin), substituting species with lower concentrations.
