Mercury Concentrations in Lake Ozette Sockeye
Mercury Concentrations in Lake Ozette Sockeye (Number of pages: 14) (Publication Size: 293KB)
|Description||During 2010, mercury levels were measured in 28 whole body and 10 fillet samples from Lake Ozette sockeye salmon. Whole body levels ranged from 24 - 50 ug/kg. Fillet levels ranged from 25 - 43 ug/kg. These levels were low in comparison to resident Lake Ozette fish. Mercury levels in Lake Ozette sockeye were lower than mercury levels in coho and chinook salmon from the Puget Sound and Columbia River basins and were similar to levels recorded in Alaska.|
