Eat Safe Fish Guides

To learn how to choose safer fish to eat:

Check out the Eat Safe Fish in Michigan brochure to find out if you're at risk from chemicals in fish.

You can use your region's Eat Safe Fish Guide to find safer fish to eat. To find current PFAS in fish guidelines, visit the Michigan PFAS Response Fish and Wildlife webpage.

You are not required to use the MDHHS Eat Safe Fish Guides. These are only guidelines to help you and your family make safer meal choices.

Click your region on the map or select your county from the list below to find your Guide. You can also call MDHHS at 1-800-648-6942 for a free print copy.
