Assessing Michigan`s Beneficial Use of Sport-Caught Fish

The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) will partner with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) and Michigan`s 14 Area of Concern Public Advisory Councils (PACs) to assess progress toward removal of three Beneficial Use Impairments: Fish Consumption Advisories, Tainting of Fish Flavor, and Fish Tumors and Other Deformities and to make recommendations for further action. Fish samples will be analyzed for polychlorinated biphenyls, mercury and/or dioxin at five priority Areas of Concern to assist in removal of the Fish Consumption Advisory BUIs. Community-specific public outreach to promote safe sport-caught fish consumption will be developed and implemented by the state and the PACs.
