Hudson River Fish Advisory Project

To help people make healthier choices about which fish to eat, the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) issues advisories/advice about eating fish they catch. Fish are nutritious and good to eat, but some fish have levels of chemicals that may be harmful to your health. PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) are a type of man-made chemical in Hudson River fish that can harm your health. Even if the fish look healthy and the water looks clean, these chemicals are present in Hudson River fish, including striped bass.
