Idaho Wants to Know How People Eat Fish

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality plans to conduct a fish-consumption survey. Agency spokesman Don Essig tells the Idaho Statesman the study will look at the general population and those who hold Idaho fishing licenses.

The agency hopes to find out the eating habits of Idaho residents when it comes to trout, bass and other fish. Officials say fish-consumption rates are important to water quality regulators who use the information to calculate pollution standards intended to protect human health.

Authorities say the standards should be stronger if people eat more fish. The current standard in Idaho and Washington state is based on a consumption rate of 6.5 grams per day per person. The Environmental Protection Agency says that consumption rate is out of date.
