The South Bay Mercury Project: Using Biosentinels to Monitor Effects of Wetland Restoration for the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project
The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project plans to convert 50-90% of the former salt evaporation ponds of South San Francisco Bay into tidal marsh habitat. This large-scale habitat restoration may change the distribution, bioavailability, and bioaccumulation of methylmercury.
