    Ocean seafood is by far the highest and worst.
    Mackerel
    Shark
    Swordfish

    Those three are so bad I would suggest not eating them at all.

    There are some fresh water and other sea species that register with some mercury, but not as bad and therefore can be eaten occasionally.
    Anchovies
    Butterfish
    Catfish
    Clam
    Cod
    Crab

    For a full list please visit the FDA webstite:

    Fish is the food you need to worry about containing mercury, especially shark, swordfish, and king mackerel. Other seafood can be contaminated too, due to pollution of waterways.

    Mercury has also been found in high fructose corn syrup, and in many common brands of food that contain h f c s.
