Total mercury was determined in 99 oldsquaw (Clangula hyemalis) livers and 11 composite clutches collected on Lake Michigan and in northwest Hudson Bay. Residue levels were similar in different sex and age-classes collected during the same time period on Lake Michigan. Mercury levels were higher in oldsquaws collected in Hudson Bay than in those taken on Lake Michigan. Residues in the hen and clutch were positively correlated. Mercury in duckling livers was negatively correlated with the weight of the liver.
