BOISE – The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality plans to conduct a fish-consumption survey.
Agency spokesman Don Essig said the study will look at the general population and those who hold Idaho fishing licenses, according to the Idaho Statesman.
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. More here.
