A new state fish advisory issued today provides safe eating advice for black bass species, Rainbow Trout, Sacramento Sucker, and Inland Silverside from Lake Almanor in Plumas County, near the town of Chester.
Fish are nutritious and good for you to eat.
- Fish are an excellent source of protein and most are low in saturated fats.
- Fish contain omega-3 fatty acids that can reduce your risk for heart disease and improve how the brain develops in unborn babies and children.
- But some fish you catch may take in toxic chemicals from the water in which they live and the food they eat.
- Some of these chemicals build up in the fish - and in you - over time.
- Check our Fish Advisories for help on how to pick the best fish for you and your family.
