    The subject of mercury and fish consumption advisories came up in a post in the rivers section, and I thought I'd bring it up here, too.

    SC DHEC's fish consuption advisories for last year can be found in the form of a clickable map. Here it is:

    http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/fish/map.htm

    As a matter of fact, the location of this info is important enough that maybe this should be a "sticky" post in the SC section?

    I'm really amazed to see how many fish are took home to be ate. I fish 12-mile a lot and that's about the worst place there is to eat fish out of, yet people bring home stringers of fish anyway.

    I for one think it should be a law to post fish advisories at every bridge where fishermen are likely to be...... In fact the advisory should be welded to a trash can so we can keep things cleaner while we are at it.

    Ah heck just go ahead and eat em just make the bathroom glow in the evenings and mornings:smile2: Seriously though it is a shame that most of our bodies of water are not safe to eat fish from(by gov't standards) The lakes here in GA are just as bad Its just a shame that these thing were not thought through before the chance of something like this happening years ago
