Is it Safe to Eat the Fish?

Some ocean fish and shellfish contain varying levels of pollutants like mercury, PCBs and dioxins. Because of this, the N.H. Department of Environmental Services recommends the following guidelines:

Best Choices:

Cod, flounder, haddock, herring, light tuna (canned), pollock, sole, salmon, tilapia, shellfish (oysters, shrimp, crab, clams, scallops, lobster) — Pregnant and nursing women, women who may become pregnant, and young children can safely eat TWO meals per week. For all others, no limit as part of a balanced diet.

Good Choices:

Halibut, red snapper, tuna steak, white tuna (canned) — Pregnant and nursing women, women who may become pregnant, and young children can safely eat ONE meal per week. For all others, no limit as part of a balanced diet.

Cautions:

Bluefish, Striped Bass

Pregnant and nursing women, women who may become pregnant, and young children should avoid consumption. For all others, eat no more than ONE meal per month.

King Mackerel, Swordfish, Shark, Tilefish

Pregnant and nursing women, women who may become pregnant, and young children should avoid consumption. For all others, limit to TWO meals per month.

Lobster Tomalley (green substance in lobster)

Everyone avoid consumption. All other parts of the lobster, no limits as part of a balanced diet.

Stick to the lowest weekly or monthly limits when combining freshwater fish, ocean fish and shellfish. Do not add limits. For more freshwater and saltwater guidelines, contact:
