Got Mercury?

As a follow up to my post about eating tuna, I would like to mention a great site I just discovered called http://gotmercury.org/ brought to us by the Sea Turtle Restoration Project.

This site has an excellent mercury calculator, both a basic version (for figuring out the average amount of mercury in a single portion of fish) and an advanced calculator (for figuring out how much mercury might be in your weekly fish intake.) They also have a Mobi site set up so you can use this mercury calculator on your mobile phone.

The site also has some great articles and alerts, so it is a good place to visit often if you are a seafood lover.
