We collected shoreline spiders, emergent aquatic insects and terrestrial insects from in and around the 10 experimental ponds near Fort Worth, Texas. For each spider and insect taxon, we attempted to collect one composite sample from each experimental pond but not all taxa were present at all ponds. This dataset contains the number of individuals collected, total mercury concentration, estimated methylmercury concentration, d15N values and d13C values from each composite sample.
