Mercury that is released into the environment can be transformed through biological processes into methyl mercury. This form of mercury “bioaccumulates” in fish to levels that are 100,000 times higher than levels in the water in which the fish live, making them unhealthful or dangerous to eat. Methyl mercury is highly toxic to developing nervous systems.
