Determine the concentrations of mercury in the fish of Oyster Pond.
Information to be Derived
Samples and chemical analysis;Samples and chemical analysis;
Determinations of mercury in white perch and river herring.
Four specimens of adult white perch were collected within 10 m upstream and 
downstream of  the Oyster Pond weir using a spinning rod with a streamer fly 
that resembled the migrating YOY herring.  The fly was cast with the aid of a 
water filled bobber.  The fish weights ranged from 125-513 grams.  They were 
sampled for analysis of total mercury and the remainder was wrapped in aluminum 
foil and frozen as a archive.
