    Sometimes I get bored and well I started reading other states Fish and Wildlife regulations...ok,ok I was REALLY bored... Anyhow I was checking out the neighboring state of Indiana catfish and sportfish consumption advisories and learned what they base their warnings on, and I quote:

    "fish consumption advisories are based on people eating 8 oz. of fish 225 days a year for 70 years..."

    HOLY SMOKES! I am doing good to eat 10 fish meals the whole year from local waters, not too mention 70 years! Granted it takes the metals in the water a long time to accumulate in your body but jeez who would even want to eat that much fish? I like catfish just as much as the next guy and I am also concerned about PCB's and friends making their way into my families bodies but these advisories sound way more dangerous than they really are. Be a good sportsman and read the consumption warnings from your DNR but remember to also read what they are basing their conclusions on.

    Tight Lines,

    You have better chance of dying if you smoke cigarettes, drink beer, eat KFC, and drive over the speed limit. Drinking too much Mountain Dew can even kill you!

    Japan and Okinawa have the highest number of Centurians (people who past 100 years). How many do we see live past 100 in the states?

    Eat more fish!

    No it won't KILL you... Mercury and pcb's only causes brain damage, fertility, and erectile dysfunction.... stuff like that... eventually you'll kill yourself:smile2:
