Caught this article in the news yesterday about contaminants in our freshwater fish including a quote from Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Mike Helfrich.
With the exception of a few walleyes caught over 30 years ago while fishing with a friend near Tunkhannock, I've not consumed any fish from the Susquehanna, primarily because I'm a catch & release guy at heart.
Perhaps the PFBC and/or local officials should consider signage in multiple languages at high-traffic access sites along our major rivers, or possibly handing out brightly-colored cards with every fishing license sold. If people are taking the fish they catch home...chances are they are eating them.
