State advises anglers about mercury in fish

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Health and Game and Fish departments advise residents to remain up to date on the mercury levels in the fish they catch and eat.

Game and Fish Department assistant fisheries management coordinator Mark Smith says the two agencies plan to continue to update the fish consumption advisory for Wyoming-caught fish as new data is analyzed.

New data on fish from Lake Desmet, Boysen, Buffalo Bill, Keyhole and Palisades reservoirs found a few additions and adjustments to the consumption advisories for fish in those waters.

The majority of additions to the advisory this year are for larger lake trout and walleye at Buffalo Bill Reservoir, where data was previously not available.
Anglers may want to consult the updated advisories by going to the Game and Fish website.
