Fish Advisory Signs Victory!

In recognition of the human health concerns of eating locally caught fish, the City of Madison and Dane County has authorized the Public Health Department to place fish consumption advisory signs along public fishing shorelines in city and county parks.

Signs will be installed in the spring before fishing season begins. Popular fishing spots such as Monona Bay in Brittingham Park will have advisory signs in English, Hmong and Spanish to advise people on the kinds and amounts of fish safest to eat.
