Description

Asbury Park Press reports that "A deadly form of mercury can cause devastating damage to young children and developing fetuses. Of primary concern are fish species that accumulate mercury. Yet governmental warnings are inconsistent. Though 34 states have issued freshwater warnings, few - including New Jersey - have done the same for saltwater fish. Consequences, scientists warn, could be severe."
