Contaminated Fish

When fishing in contaminated saltwater areas, one should be wary on the fish they decide to take home for dinner. Topsmelt, Barred Sand Bass, White Croaker, Black Croaker,¬†and Barracuda are fish that you should not consume. Most of these fish are local fish that don’t migrate. Migratory fishes are usually not contaminated and have a higher chance of being fit for consumption. Visit this page often for updates.
