Fish Consumption Advisory for Indiana

Fish Consumption Advisory by County

 

How to read the Indiana Fish Consumption Advisory:

  • Select water body by county.  (For some counties, you may have to search just by water body).
  • Identify which population you are. The options are:
    1. The sensitive population: This includes females under the age of 50 excluding women who are no longer capable of becoming pregnant, males under age 18, and people with compromised immune systems.
    2. The general population: This includes adult men over the age of 17 and women over the age of 50 or are no longer capable of becoming pregnant.
  • View the species that you will be fishing for that you plan to eat.
  • Measure the fish you plan to eat.

Review consumption groups based on the previous steps.
 

Group Sensitive Population General Population
1 1 meal per week Unlimited Consumption
2 1 meal per month 1 meal per week
3 Do Not Eat 1 meal per month
4 Do Not Eat 1 meal every 2 months
5 Do Not Eat Do Not Eat


*One meal is 8 oz. for an adult and for children (ages 2-6) a meal is 3 oz.

  • Unlimited consumption means 225 meals in a year period or 4.5 meals in a week.
  • If your fish species is not listed for a water body, or there is no advisory for the waterbody you're looking for, please consult the Indiana Safe Fish Consumption Guidelines that are based on all of the state fish tissue data:
  • Preliminary fish consumption advisory for Clear Lake in La Porte, IN: Consumption of fish from Clear Lake in La Porte, IN should be limited to no more than one meal per month by all populations.  Exceptions to this general advice are:
    • Do not eat common carp.
    • Largemouth Bass consumption for all legal sizes should be limited to no more than 6 meals per year.

***Counties without a PDF attachment, do not have a water body advisory within the county.
