Warning issued for some Columbia River fish
« on: September 23, 2013, 04:22:12 PM »
Health officials say some species of fish in the Columbia River may be contaminated with mercury and PCBs. Migratory fish such as salmon are not affected, they said.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Health officials in Oregon and Washington say people should protect themselves against mercury and PCB contamination by limiting consumption of certain fish species from a 150-mile section of the Columbia River.

The advisory issued Monday applies to fish that live year-round between the Bonneville and McNary dams, including bass, bluegill, yellow perch, crappie, walleye, carp, catfish, suckers and sturgeon.

It does not apply to migratory fish such as salmon and steelhead.

The Oregon Health Authority and the Washington Department of Health recommend eating no more than one meal per week of resident fish species from the affected zone. They recommend not eating any fish taken between Bonneville Dam and Ruckel Creek one mile upstream.

Officials say they’re unsure how long the advisory will last.

I have the same issue with the tuna.  Love having it canned and eat it a few times a week.  I am probably off the charts on all the toxic level indicators.
