Mmm Hmm. Tells me all I need to know about it.

I could have said just about any source in my response, and your reply would have been the same.

there is a crap ton of info out there.  I kinda read some and just make my decision for me and my family.  

 

this is definitely filed under "you do you".  just like our more recent health concern, the pandemic..we all came to our own conclusion anyways.  

 

IMHO, there is no way to handle our waste in our industrial world.  in my college wastewater class, there was a phrase we were taught.  "the best solution to pollution is dilution".  we have been diluting waste into our water d**n near forever.   I love fish, but I limit my consumption personally.  I do realize we aint making more water, so the solution has to be getting richer with respect to pollution.

I don't pay any attention to educated suit and ties, nah.

My fishing partner of over 40 years should have taken on the form of an outdoor thermometer from all the mercury induced fish he's eaten........ he's still eating them at 66 and has both eyes.

Honestly, fish isn't one of my favorite foods.   Cleaning fish isn't my favorite activity.   I've posted warning, but if I like bass, or whatever species I'd eat them.  

Close to 50 years ago a good friend of mine had a Great Uncle that was a hog farmer.  He ate pork every meal.  Bacon, ham, sausage, livermush, pork chops, shoulder, ect.   He had a stroke and died.  His Doctor said he had the stroke because he ate too much pork.   HE WAS 93 YEARS OLD!!!   

 

Information is good, especially accurate information, but in the end we're all going to die.

Another example if you don't mind.

Been chewing tobacco since 1971 and have not lost a single tooth.

My dentist asks the same question every year " are you still chewing tobacco ? "

Yes Doc.

" Your teeth are going to fall out " 

Maybe my teeth are stubborn. Idk

Similar here

Been smoking since 1970 (started young)

Last full physical - EKG was normal...for a 45 year old (I'm 63) and my lung capacity is still around 98%, cholesterol hovers around 185 total, BP registered at 105/68, pulse was 73

My Doc just looked at me in disgust.

Some people are genetically immune to bad effects of certain things...I seem to be one of them.

PFAS became a big thing here in my neck of the woods about 5 years ago when it was discovered that Wolverine World Wide (Wolverine footwear) was dumping it on one of their properties. They quit doing it a few decades ago but the damage was already done and had made its was into the ground water. The past four years they’ve been running water mains around 20 miles worth to get clean water to these areas. Wolverine is footing the bill, as they should. 
 

This situation set off a domino effect. Shortly after this was discovered they started testing the soil around Gerald R Ford airport for PFAS and sure enough the ground water was contaminated. If I remember correctly it was from the de-icing chemicals or foam they used for putting out fires at the airport. 

Almost the entire Huron river system in SE Michigan is under a do not eat fish PFAS warning.  I think the only section that isn’t is the extreme upper reaches.

 

I’m not exactly sure what the cause of the issue was.  However, the entire region is devoted to the auto industry

LOL. Saw an article this morning about Coca Cola getting sued over OJ contaminated with this same stuff. It's everywhere, ya can't avoid it. No point worrying about it. Eat fish, drink OJ, be happy. I'm gonna live forever anyway. 😉

Forever Chemicals have gone way past fish.  It's in the water we drink.  It's in the packaging we use.  We are surrounded by it.  MedCram on YouTube does a good breakdown on it including the chemical wack-a-mole aspect of it.  I put effort into avoiding the stuff, but I admit.  It is probably futile.

Section 3 and 4 of the susky is stocked. There isn’t enough natural reproduction there. Even trout from the hatchery are tested for mercury lead pcbs and you should only eat so many per month. Human waste is the biggest issue with the susky in the Harrisburg area not the stuff mentioned in that article.

How bout when they found the male fish growing eggs. Traced that back to birth control in the water?

That’s what I always heard it was from. There was those massive fish kills in the 2000s that destroyed the fishery for about a decade. It’s back and it’s good now. Not to where it was but still good.

Those fish kills were large mouth bass virus. They finally traced that the whole way back to Bald Eagle State Park aka Sayers Dam. It hit there first and just went in waves the whole way down the river. Fish kills in the Juniata were chemical spills.

Guys are catching prespawn 25-30lb bags in Sayers.

Wow!  I haven't fished there in many years. Maybe I need to take a ride.
