Fish Netters:

        Some help please.  I am interested in the potential of selenium to
reduce the uptake and/or toxicity of mercury to fish.  I know very little
about this element.  Is there a selenium expert out there that could tell me:

What is the normal concentration range of selenium in marine versus fresh
waters?
What is the normal concentration range of selenium in tissues from marine
and freshwater fish?
Is the chemical form of selenium in marine and freshwater similar?  If not,
how do they differ?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Terry Haines
