Mercury Study Report to Congress, Volume 4 Chapter 4, Population Exposure - Fish Consumption [PDF]
Abstract: This chapter provides an estimate as to the magnitude of fish consumption in the US and within specific populations. Also provides: estimate to identify the portion of the population that consumes fish and shellfish, and an estimate of the variety of species and quantity of fish that are typically consumed in the United States.

Mercury Study Report to Congress, Volume 6 Chapters 4 & 5, Effects of Mercury on Avian and Mammalian Wildlife & Assessment of the Risk Posed by Airborne Mercury Emissions to Piscivorous Avian and Mammalian Wildlife [PDF]
Abstract: Chapter 4 provides a summary of the toxicity of methylmercury to vertebrate systems. Presents guidance on the selection of appropriate toxicological endpoints and reviews toxicological studies on avian/mammalian wildlife. Chapter 5 is a summary of ecological risk assessment methods which are applicable to airborne mercury emissions. Different evaluation methods are used for different regions of the United States.

Mercury Study Report to Congress, Volume 7 Chapters 3 & 4, Characterization of Fate of Environmental Mercury & Characterization of Exposure [PDF]
Abstract: Chapter 3 makes an effort to update wildlife criterion (WC) values for mercury by calculating its value using methylmercury data. With the appropriate conversion factors, this data can be related to total mercury in fish and water. Chapter 4 looks at modeling analysis, long-range atmospheric transport analysis, uncertainties in environmental fate modeling, and mercury concentrations in water and aquatic biota.
