Are my fish safe to eat?

It is safe to eat fish caught from the vast majority of Kansas waters.

If you've caught fish from one of the dozens of Kansas reservoirs, hundreds of state fishing and community lakes, tens of thousands of farm ponds or miles of rivers, you can rest assured they are safe to eat.  There are some advisories on fish consumption, but they are limited.  For a list of water with consumption advisories and additional information, click here: Are my fish safe to eat?
