BLUE FISH RADIO
Fish consumption advisories under the microscope
Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio, podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. Produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, the program is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge and scientific discoveries, and supporting local champions who protect and enhance our waters.
In this episode of Blue Fish Radio, producer/host Lawrence Gunther talks to Neil Dempster, a biologist with the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences. Dempster has spent the last two years sorting through fish consumption advisories for the upper St. Lawrence River, and his finding include important lessons for recreational anglers. In addition, he believes that government has to improve transparency and public awareness about consumption advisories, to head off a potential health crisis.
