New report outlines safety of local fi: h for consumption Heading to the lake for a family fishing/camping trip? Thanks to a new release from a California health agency, anglers now have all the information they need to decide whether to eat that fish they caught, or release it. Last week, the state of California released comprehensive safe eating guidelines for fish from all California's lakes and reservoirs that do not have location-specific guidelines issued. This means that there M.

Main St., Quincy is now information available for any lake people are fishing in the Sierra. The new advisory, from the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, recommends that women aged 18 - 45 and children under 18 should choose wild-caught rainbow trout and smaller brown trout and should avoid eating bass, carp amd larger brown trout. This advice is intended to protect children and babies from mercury exposure, which can permanently damage their brain and nervous system. In Plumas County, these new guidelines pertain to Bucks Lake, Lake Davis, Lake Almanor, Butt Valley Reservoir, Frenchman Lake, Little Grass Valley Reservoir and numerous other small lakes and reservoirs. Additionally, for Lake Oroville, it is advisable to follow the newly released general guidelines if the fish caught is not covered by the location-specific guidelines existing for those areas. Prior to these new guidelines, hundreds of lakes and reservoirs in the Sierra had no fish consumption warnings -- which led the public to believe that the fish from those locations were safe to eat. In actuality, it just meant that not enough fish had been sampled from that lake to determine whether they were safe to eat or not. In Gold Rush country, where mercury from historic mining operations has built up in fish, certain species are generally not safe for children and women to eat -- as the new safe eating guidelines confirm. In creating the advisory and guidelines, Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment scientists evaluated data from 272 lakes and reservoirs and considered data from more than 2,600 individual fish samples. The data come from the State Water Resources Control Board's Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program, the Toxic Substances Monitoring Program and the Fish Mercury Project. A full report on how these guidelines were developed is available on the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment's website. The Sierra Fund CEO Elizabeth Martin is pleased that precautionary information has finally been released. "We have been working for years to bring good information to families in the Sierra who want to eat local fish, but not endanger the health of their kids. These new guidelines make our job so much easier. We now have clear, specific guidelines for every lake or reservoir in the Sierra." The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment plans to continue its work to get data on fish mercury levels from Sierra lakes and reservoirs, and will continue to issue location-specific safe eating guidelines as they are developed. But in the meantime, this new release of general guidelines helps anglers make safe choices when eating local fish.
