    The debilitating effects of mercury on humans and ecosystems have long been known, and they were brought to the attention of the world after the outbreak of diseases among the Japanese fishermen in Minamata Bay in the early seventies. Since then it has been recognized that the mercury contamination in fish is a worldwide human health threat because mercury is globally distributed through atmospheric transport. The methyl mercury present in fish is particularly toxic to humans, particularly pregnant women and children.
