Fishing is a great pastime and tradition in Oklahoma. Fish provide many benefits that are essential for a healthy diet; however, some fish pose a higher risk of mercury contamination. The DEQ encourages Oklahomans to go fishing and enjoy eating the fish they catch. Just keep in mind that not all fish should be eaten in unlimited amounts. By following these guidelines, you can make safe, informed choices for you and your family and still enjoy the sport of fishing.
