Mangroves are killing Dolphins

A study by Florida International University of Dolphins in The Everglades and Florida Bay reveals the highest level of Mercury poisoning ever recorded and much of it is caused by leaves from mangroves that fall in brackish water and mix with bacteria. The mixture results in highly  toxic Methylmercury polluting the waters dolphins swim in...The east coast has recently suffered a major dolphin kill but no word on if this was one of the causes. and no. .   word on possible effect on humans  who paddle in brackish mangrove water but an an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If concerned call the science department at FYI. They should have more details
