Thank you for the list & all the comments! I copied/pasted/edited foods to include some- remove others. Listing 'fish' & 'seafood' is all-inclusive, but those listed as 'lowest' in mercury levels, are:
Anchovies, Butterfish, Calamari (squid) Caviar (farmed) Crab (king) Pollock, Catfish, Whitefish, Perch (ocean) Scallops, Flounder, Haddock, Hake, Herring, Lobster (spiny/rock) Shad, Sole, Crawfish/crayfish, Salmon, Shrimp, Clams, Tilapia, Oysters, Sardines, Sturgeon (farmed) Trout (freshwater)
Note: Tuna didn't make that list. It's on the next step up in the mercury levels, from the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC); data obtained by the FDA & EPA.
