Florida Department of Health Releases 2012 Fish Consumption Advisory

The Florida Department of Health (DOH) recently released the latest food advisory for fish caught in Florida’s freshwater rivers, lakes, and streams; estuarine waters, and marine waters.

Pregnant or nursing mothers should be particularly careful about which fish and how much they consume. Pay close attention to the amounts of fish that can be consumed over a given period of time (there is an additive effect) and to those fish that should be avoided altogether.
