Humboldt Baykeeper Continues Testing Fish For Mercury

Jul 26, 2019

Californians need to know if the fish they catch are safe to eat, so the state keeps spending money on testing fish for mercury. 

Cal EPA recently awarded another grant to Humboldt Baykeeper to continue its mercury testing program, this time on some species of fish that were not the focus of previous testing. 

Those earlier tests revealed that not all the fish on the North Coast are safe to eat all the time.
