The start of the Mersey is at the City: Liverpool, Manchester. Data for the Mersey Estuary and inner Liverpool Bay were found to be consistent with results of recent compliance monitoring in the latter area (Franklin & Jones, ), with mackerel mg kg~1 and eel ( mg kg~1) having the highest mean values, and ranges of mg kg-' and mg kg-', respectively (Table 4).Cited by:   The fish, caught at high tide, weighed a whopp and 12lbs.

The estuary can be divided into four distinct zones. The current deposits sand into the wider estuary which is 3 miles at its widest, and takes much of it back out into Liverpool Bay. The River Mersey has the 4th highest tidal rise in the world. The deep water channel maintained by the strong currents made the estuary ideal for a deep water port - the only safe deep water haven on the North West.

The River Mersey estuary runs between Liverpool and the Wirral, with Liverpool on the west bank. It's usually brown in colour, due to the strong currents which whip up the sand as the tide runs and out. At the turn of the tide the river reverts to a greenish colour for a very short time.

The potential for heavy metal contamination to negatively affect human health has resulted in many studies into heavy metal levels in fish and shellfish species, particularly in regions heavily impacted by anthropogenic inputs (Ratkowsky et al., ; Walker, ; Fabris et al., ).

Levels of contaminants in fish are of interest not only. The same sand is washed in and out from Liverpool Bay. If most of this sand is removed (big task, but not impossible), instead of removing and dumping sand back into the bay, the river would remain very deep.

Although some of the best areas for birds on the Mersey have no, or very limited public access, there are a number of sites where the wildlife can be observed.The composition of the fish species assemblage in North Inlet changes throughout the year as different species and life stages move in and out of the estuary.

In general, there are two groups of fishes, residents and transients. Residents live in the estuary throughout their lives.
