Eating Fish from Michigan's Lakes & Rivers

Getting Started...

Michigan has over 11,000 lakes, streams, and rivers. Unfortunately, some of those water bodies have been polluted with chemicals including PCBs, dioxins, and mercury. Check out the links below to learn more about eating safe fish.

If you eat fish regularly, use the Eat Safe Fish Guides to find the guidelines for your fish, lake, or river.
