The type of airborne pollutants discussed in those articles don't have anything to do with mercury levels in fish. My girlfriend is a vegetarian and is pretty well educated on which fish have inherently high levels of mercury and which don't. As mwshapi said, Tuna is one of the highest. You have to be VERY careful about the amount of tuna you consume. On the other hand, Talapia or Chilean Sea Bass contain almost no mercury. The type of fish you consume most often determines your risk level.
