Fish Consumption Advisories

Whether you are fishing to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with family, or catch dinner, you should always be safe about the fish you eat. The South Carolina Fish Consumption Advisories tell you where you should limit the amount of fish you eat and where it is safe to eat as much fish as you like.
