Fishing is a fun way to enjoy national parks. Before you go, be sure to check fish consumption advisories for your local waters to ensure your catch is safe to eat.

Fish are an important part of a healthy diet. While most saltwater fish are safe and healthy to eat, toxins can accumulate in their bodies. Over time, some older, often larger, fish will be exposed to more toxins. And these can be hazardous, especially for pregnant women and young children. So that you can be better informed, consumption guidelines for saltwater fish are posted online. Before you go out, search for fish consumption advisories, and when you are fishing, be aware of any other notices you might see. Fish smart and be healthy!
