Soup and Sandwich Seminar: Have Mining Activities Increased Mercury In Fish In The St Louis River

December 21

Presenter: Dr. Jeff Jeremiason, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Environmental Studies

Current and historic mining of primarily iron has impacted the water chemistry of the St Louis River and there is concern that the altered water chemistry has impacted the behavior of mercury in the River and resulted in elevated fish mercury levels.  This talk will examine recent research done by Gustavus students on bioaccumulation and cycling of mercury in the River and the freshwater estuary between the St Louis River and Lake Superior.

RESERVATION AND PRE-PAYMENT REQUIRED

*Meal served at 11:30am.  Talk begins at 12:00pm and is over by 1:00pm. 

Cost is $8 for Arboretum Members, $9 for non-members.
