North Saskatchewan River
Health Canada sets fish consumption guidelines based on:
- The concentration of mercury in fish tissue
- The human body's ability to eliminate mercury at a slow rate
You should not eat fish from the North Saskatchewan River more than once a week, and do not eat the liver or other organs. Pregnant women, women of child-bearing age, and children under the age of 15 should not consume the fish at all.
The mercury in many areas of the province, including the North Saskatchewan River, is likely from natural sources (Alberta Guide to Sportfishing Regulations).
