Ackerman, J.T., and Eagles-Smith, C.A., 2019, Wetland management strategy to reduce mercury export in water and bioaccumulation in fish: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Total mercury concentrations in western mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) that were caged at specific locations within four control wetlands and four treatment wetlands for a 30-day exposure time period to test the effectiveness of wetland management strategy to reduce mercury contamination. Fish data only. Water data published in a separate data release by co-authors. These data support the following publication: Ackerman, J.T., Fleck, J.A., Eagles‐Smith, C.A., Marvin‐DiPasquale, M., Windham‐Myers, L., Herzog, M.P. and McQuillen, H.L., 2019.
