That is pretty much true of everywhere. The details may vary a bit but
basically fish consumption should be limited to smaller fish and rates of
consumption to no more than once a week. This should be more restrictive for children
and women of child bearing age. Basically it means that all of us who,-in-one
time would eat fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the bigger and more
predatory the better, will die someday. Although I follow the guidelines
faithfully, I also learned that younger fish taste a lot better than old fish. That
makes it easier to follow the guidelines. For example, I will not keep a Lake
Trout over 22 inches nor a Northern Pike over 26 inches. They taste a lot
better, especially if caught just in time for dinner.
