This guide doesn't address the other issue - that is, what harmful health
effects ON HUMANS can be realized by eating the wrong kind of fish. The
Ontario government publishes every second year a very detailed description of
the species, detailed location variations and effects of eating fish
contaminated with Mercury, PCBs, Dioxins, etc. It is a serious problem which
is getting better. Some of the contamination is natural, not man-made, like
some mercury effects. The bottom line, over generalized is this, eat smaller
fish, eat non–piscavores, and don't eat fish if you are pregnant or of
childbearing (female) age and don't eat fish very often. Makes catching and
eating trophy fish very unpalatable.
