Wow! 1000 times the other fish tested! It is unfortunate that all of our predator fish fall in this category of having the highest levels. Fish that feed mainly on weeds or insects tend to have the lowest levels.
Steve, was there any indication of where the gar comes from having any impact on toxicity levels? Was the Roanoke more polluted than say, the Trent River?
The WRC usually posts recommendations on consumption but last time I looked at it I did not notice if gar was on the list. Sounds like it needs to be.
