SALT LAKE CITY – Officials with the Utah Department of Environmental Quality are asking Utahns to be aware of recent updates to the Utah Mercury Fish Consumption Advisory List.
The advisory updates are being issued after state officials found elevated levels of mercury in fish tissue in Starvation Reservoir and Yuba Reservoir.
The advisory says pregnant women and children under six should not consume Walleye caught at Starvation Reservoir or Yuba Reservoir.
The advisory also says pregnant women and children under six should not consume Largemouth Bass caught at Quail Creek Reservoir or Recapture Reservoir.
People who do not meet those criteria may consume the fish in limited quantities. (Read the advisories at www.fishadvisories.utah.gov for details.)
