How are fresh water fish getting mercury into their systems?

    Mercury is formed naturally in the earth and is also released into the air as industrial pollution.  The pollution finds its way into rain, which refills bodies of freshwater.  It forms methylmercury in the water, which contaminates small organisms like algae and bacteria first, and works its way up the food chain into fish as they eat the lower-level organisms.
