If a conductor is moved in a magnetic field current is induced in that conductor. So if I use Liquid mercury in place of the conductor will the same happen?

More precisely an electromotive force is induced across the ends of the conductor because of charge separation due to the magnetic field. The same will happen with liquid mercury.
