Fish Consumption Frequency

By PSU EcoMerge Capstone - 5:42 PM


I created this info graphic that includes information about the safe frequency of eating certain fish from specific water bodies in Oregon. It's important to realize that the amount of fish a pregnant woman or children eat varies from what everyone else can eat to avoid mercury poisoning.

The Oregon health authority keeps the levels of mercury and others contaminants up to date as much as possible. With mercury level on the rise in Oregon it's crucial to know which fish is safe to eat. We should be informed about the source of the fish we buy, the safety and the frequency of consumption.

To stay up to date and to find out about specific areas please refer to the link below.
