climate and physiography predict mercury concentrations in game fish species in quebec lakes better than anthropogenic disturbances.the fluctuations of mercury levels (hg) in fish consumed by sport fishers in north-eastern america depend upon a plethora of interrelated biological and abiological factors. to identify the dominant factors ultimately controlling fish hg concentrations, we compiled mercury levels (hg) during the 1976-2010 period in 90 large natural lakes in quebec (canada) for two major game species: northern pike (esox lucius) and walleye (sander vitreus). our statistical analysis included 28 geographic informa ...201626825460

fish consumption and contaminant exposure among montreal-area sportfishers: pilot study.a 1995 pilot study assessed sport fish consumption and contaminant exposure among montreal-area residents fishing the frozen st. lawrence river. interviews conducted among 223 ice fishers met on-site were used to create an index of estimated exposure to fish-borne contaminants. a second-stage assessment of sport fish consumption and tissue contaminant burdens included 25 interviewees at the highest level of estimated contaminant exposure (of 38, or 66% of those solicited) and 15 low-exposure fis ...199910092428
training future surgeons for management roles: the resident-surgeon-manager conference.objective to demonstrate that senior surgical residents would benefit from focused training by professionals with management expertise. although managerial skills are recognized as necessary for the successful establishment of a surgical practice, they are not often emphasized in traditional surgical residency curricula. design senior residents from all surgical subspecialties at mcgill university were invited to participate in a 1-day management seminar. precourse questionnaires aimed at evalua ...201223117834
