    (Trenton, N.J. : New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Science and Research, 2021-08) New Jersey. Department of Environmental Protection; New Jersey. Department of Health
    This 2021 update uses the results of a study involving the analysis of samples of fish species collected from lakes, rivers, ponds and reservoirs that flow from the Delaware River, Hudson River, and Raritan River regions. This information was used to support the continuation and revision of the current fish consumption advisories for this region and identified the need for additional fish consumption advisories. This booklet summarizes the marine, estuarine and freshwater fish consumption advisories for New Jersey. It provides you with information on how to reduce your risk by avoiding or limiting consumption of certain fish. It also offers guidance in how to prepare the fish you eat from local waters in ways that reduce your exposure to PCBs, dioxins and other contaminants.
