The definitive words on mercury in fish (or, if it seems like the public is dumbing down…

that’s perhaps because it is).  I highly recommend that you invest 28 minutes in watching Fish, mercury & nutrition: the net effects. You can get to it at    It was done by the Energy and Environmental Research Center at the University of North Dakota with NMFS funding and put’s the mercury/omega 3 “controversy” into the proper – and understandable – national and international context.
And pass the link around. Anyone with an interest in public health in the U.S., in the mental acuity of the next generation, and in the  damage that radical environmentalists are inflicting on our society owes it to themselves to watch it.
I give it 5 stars.
