Reducing Mercury Levels in Great Lakes Fish Consumers in Minnesota

The Minnesota Department of Health will implement and evaluate a preventative health care initiative designed to reduce prenatal mercury exposures from fish consumption in women of child-bearing age. This initiative will result in a reduced level of mercury in the blood of women of child-bearing age in a Great Lakes community where blood mercury levels exceeding the level deemed safe by EPA have been documented. The Minnesota Department of Health will also use this funding to improve the effectiveness of fish consumption advisory information provided to the public.
