In brief: Likely yes.
Because of the chemical wastes dumped into rivers and lakes, etc.
For many decades, there is more mercury in fish. Also, there are many more fishing vessels catching more fish in the world, so there is more exposure to mercury. Still anotyer reason is due to fish at the top of the food chain eating others and concentrating mercury in them.

In brief: Sadly yes
Some of the most delectible predatory fish should now be avoided due to mercury content.
Fish with very high potential mercury levels include: shark, swordfish, marlin, king mackerel, big eye & ahi tuna, orange roughy & tilefish. Limit intake of yellow fin and white albacore tuna, spanish & gulf maceral, group, bluefish & chilean sea bass.
