Hudson River Fish Advisory Outreach

Fishing Season is Upon Us, Heed the Health Advice

Fishing is a fun family outing on the Hudson River from Corinth to South Glens Falls, but some fish contains harmful chemicals. If you don’t catch and release, check the health advice when choosing which fish to eat. The advice depends on Who You Are, Where You Fish, and What You Catch.

Check out this brochure for Hudson Valley Region: Health Advice on Eating Fish You Catch.

If you eat the fish you catch, follow these Tips for Healthier Eating to reduce exposure to chemicals.
