This report provides historical data regarding this fish advisory. EPA requests fish advisory data from the states, territories, and tribes and updates the NLFA database every 2 years. The most recent fish advisory data in the NLFA is for 2010 but states may add new advisories or rescind advisories before this data appears in the NLFA database. Therefore, for the most current fish advisory information for your state, please visit your state fish advisory website.

*A Safe Eating Guideline means the state has tested fish from these waters and found certain species to be safe to eat for the general public with no restrictions. Restrictions may or may not exist on these waterbodies for subpopulations. Please see the table below; populations of “No Restriction” or “Unlimited Consumption” are considered as a Safe Eating Guideline for the general public – please see your state website for complete up-to-date details.
