State releases fish contaminant study; offers eating guidelines

The State of Alaska this week released results of a study measuring contaminant levels in Alaskan fish. Dr. Bob Gerlach is the state veterinarian. Gerlach says the study is the culmination of work that has been ongoing since the summer of 2006. Gerlach says fish were collected through state agencies, NOAA, the International Pacific Halibut Commission, as well as from commercial and subsistence fishermen.
