Minamata disease has long been a controversial topic of special interest to victims, governments, social activists, lawyers, mass media and scientists. This paper studies the methyl mercury exposure risk on Shiranui sea fish. It is said that many contaminated fish were vended by fishwife widely, not only coast area but also more inland area. This research investigates the volume and exposure level of fish by interviewing people who have experienced those days in 1950s to 1970s. The finding suggests that the exposure level in the mountainous area's people will be measured by the peddler volume and eating habits of fish.
