Due to moderate levels of mercury and PCBs, we recommend limiting the amount of resident fish species consumed from the middle Columbia River (Ruckel Creek, 150 miles upstream to McNary Dam). Resident fish stay within a defined area on the river and do not migrate out to the ocean.
Fish are nutritious, but resident fish from the middle Columbia River contain chemicals (mercury and PCBs) that may harm your health depending on how much you eat. Everyone should follow this advisory, especially women who are or might become pregnant, nursing mothers, and young children. Babies and children are most at-risk.
