Good Catch California - Your Fish Advisor

Fish Advisories

Fish Advisories are guidelines that recommend how often you can safely eat fish caught from water bodies in California. The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) offers over 100 site-specific advisories for lakes, rivers, bays, reservoirs, and the coast. For water bodies without site-specific advice, look for the appropriate statewide advisory below.

OEHHA provides two sets of guidelines for eating fish, one for each of the following populations:

  • Women 18-49 years and children 1-17 years
  • Women 50 years and older and men 18 years and older
