Fish Advisories

The Arkansas Department of Health has broad overview of environmental conditions and hazards that affect the citizens of Arkansas. Through our Fish Advisories program, the agency identifies and quantifies exposures to environmental contaminants; conducts risk assessments and risk communication; provides surveillance for adverse health effects and provides health-based guidance on levels of exposure to such contaminants. You will find more information about the Fish Advisories program in the documentation listed below.
