Uncooked serving sizes should be 8 to 12 oz. of fish for adults and children over 12, with smaller amounts for younger children.
Fish consumption advisories apply to the consumption of all native game fish but do not apply to stocked trout at a waterbody. Stocked fish are raised in fish hatcheries and then released. Therefore, they are unlikely to spend enough time in a waterbody to become contaminated.
