Intensive Survey Branch Fish Tissue Results 

Since fish spend their entire lives in the aquatic environment, they incorporate chemicals from this environment into their body tissues. Contamination of aquatic resources, including freshwater, estuarine, and marine fish and shellfish species have been documented for heavy metals, pesticides, and other complex organic compounds. Fish tissue monitoring data is also used by the NC Department of Health for issuing fish consumption advisories. Contact Jeff DeBerardinis at 919.743.8473 for questions concerning fish tissue contaminant assessment.

 (Results are from 1990 to December, 2012)
