Ever wondered which Ontario fish and how much are safe to eat? If you fall in that category, make sure you check out the newly released Guide to Eating Ontario Fish.
The guide helps Ontarians identify fish and angling destinations with lower contaminant levels. It covers more than 2,300 locations around the province, including over 260 new locations.
Started in 1976, Ontario’s program for monitoring contaminants in sport fish is the largest program of its kind in North America.
Published every 2 years, the Guide to Eating Ontario Fish provides detailed information on the amount of Ontario fish that can be safely consumed based on Health Canada guidelines.
The guide is available online, on the Ontario government’s website, and print copies are available at select government offices and retail outlets (e.g., LCBO, The Beer Store, Walmart, Canadian Tire, and bait and tackle shops).
