i dont eat any of the fish in our waters. i read reports that the mercury level and pollutoin are so high you can only eat about one serving a month depending on what body of water you fish.

It's too bad that you can't eat the fish but the reality is that you probably could once in a while with no ill efects. I think I would risk it on those perch.

In my humble opinion, That mercury level stuff is all bogus.

I live on crosswicks creek, 500 yards from Oakford Lake. This small lake was one of the top two mercury level lakes in the state.

This summer i swam in this lake (on avrage) 4 times a week. Several hours at a time. A few times i had to drink from this lake. (we where canoeing 2 miles up with no water, in 90* temps)

The mecury is suposed to be on the fish's slime coating. I handled pickerel and bass all summer, getting my hands very slimy. I would wash them in the lakes water, then eat my packed lunch. Basicly every day i did this.

I didn't get a single sickness the whole summer. My whole family had the head colds, exept me. I got a phisical a few weeks ago, and i'm as heathy as they come, mercury level in my blood is normal.

When people see me swimming, the ask me "how could you swim in that stuff?!"

I just tell them "Its easy, Just paddle with your arms and legs and you'll swim!"

If anything, it helps build a good imune system. Dont fret about eating those fish, a little mercury is good for you. ;)

(just MHO)

well if mercury isnt enough to deter jersey anglers how about this... there are hidden nuclear missile silo sites hidden throughout nj and one happens to be in the pinebarrens off of rt. 539 chatsworth. These silos are underground and are disguised as barracks. There was a fire in one of the silos one day and the military geniuos flooded the chamber with hundreds of thousands of gallons of water. then they discovered that the missile was damaged and had leaked radiation into the4 ground water through a rack in the walls of the silo. how did they handle this situation? They poureed a four foot thick slab of concrete over the area and covered it up. The gentleman who divulged this information was gathering evedence on this in the eighties, photos, airial shots etc. His wife burned all the evidence on him beacuse she feared for his life. His brother worked in similar missile silos in another region of the counrty and was about to release a book on the top secret doings he had worked and things related to the cover up, but they found him dead in a field with a gunshot to the back of the head. this is a true story. so dont eat the fish.

Well in that case I would say that even though the mercury hasn't killed you lead poisoning will every time... I eat the fish in my river and there is a paper mill up stream. That is the first perch I have ever seen. We don't have them down here.

You guys won't be able to eat fish, but, in the next few years, you'll be producing 20 lb'ers like California.   ::)
