High Mercury Levels Are Found in Tuna Sushi – New York Times

High Mercury Levels Are Found in Tuna Sushi – New York Times
“No one should eat a meal of tuna with mercury levels like those found in the restaurant samples more than about once every three weeks,” said Dr. Michael Gochfeld, professor of environmental and occupational medicine at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, N.J.

Uh-oh.  No more spicy tuna rolls for me.

I wonder about other fish.  Why would tuna collect Hg and not other fishies?
