Sad!

Its not that bad...

East Bay Regional Park District officials who plant rainbow trout in Lake Chabot say they donít think the new advisory for trout will affect fishing because the suggested limits are relatively modest.

ďSeven servings per week means people can eat a serving every day,Ē said Joe Sullivan, the regional park districtís fisheries manager.

The new state advisories, based on PCBs and mercury found in fish, suggest consumption limits based on your sex and age. When consuming fish from Lake Chabot, women ages 18 to 45 and children ages 1 to 17
may eat two servings per week of channel catfish or sunfish species. However, they should not eat goldfish, black bass, or carp.

Women age 46 and older and men age 18 and older may eat seven servings per week of catfish, or four total servings per week of sunfish species, or two total servings per week of goldfish.

When consuming fish from Lafayette Reservoir, women ages 18 to 45 and children ages 1 to 17 may eat three servings per week of channel catfish, one serving per week of black bass.. However, they should not eat any goldfish ó found in the reservoir as cast-off aquarium pets. Women 46 or older and men 18 and older may eat seven servings per week of channel catfish or trout, or two serving per week of goldfish or black bass.

I'd think that most trout are planted and then caught soon after. If so, it would seem that they would not have time to accumulate a lot of toxins from local waters.

I wonder if they have any preference if you cull or release these bastids.

The Feds and the new Trump boys at EPA are about to sneak through higher limits on mercury in many places.  Just what we need: more pcb's, lead, mercury, arsenic, and every other industrial waste added to the shit we already have.

Anybody know the source of the PCB's?  The locale has never seen the kind of industry or activities that produce/release PCB's.  This is important, because if it's not the environment, then it indicates the fish arrive with the problem (source would be the hatchery and not good) or perhaps the EBRP might be feeding them with contaminated feed. In any case, figuring out the source of the contamination is a critical and unanswered question in this story.
