Description Since toxic chemicals are found in fish and shellfish, our state is continuing to work on this problem by developing a more accurate view of how much fish and shellfish Washington residents eat. Washington uses fish consumption rates as a basis for environmental cleanup and pollution control. Eating contaminated food is a primary exposure pathway to toxics in the environment. New scientific and regulatory developments over the past 20 years mean updates are needed.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
