Many states issue advisories about eating sport fish from their waters. Obtaining and interpreting data for the advisories is usually a collaborative effort between the state health and environmental agencies. States differ when they issue an advisory and how the advisories are presenented and distributed to the public. Dr. Kim will discuss the background and considerations that New York State uses when developing and issuing advisories for contaminants in fish.
