    Eating Ontario Fish (2015-16)

    The 28th edition of the Guide to Eating Ontario Fish gives advice to anglers, subsistence fishers and their families, and First Nations and Métis communities for choosing fish caught from Ontario water bodies to minimize exposure to toxins. The guide compiles information for more than 2,300 locations around the province, including over 150 new locations.

    Covering 2,370 locations across Ontario — including the Canadian waters of the Great Lakes — this guide includes:

    • sizes and amounts of fish you can safely eat
    • how to choose fish with the lowest levels of contaminants
    • fish you should not eat (including special advice for children and pregnant women)
