Description The Department of Ecology analyzed 77 individual fish and 25 fish tissue composites from 6 freshwater lakes as part of a long-term monitoring program to assess temporal trends in mercury levels of freshwater fish in Washington State. Fish and water samples were collected from Deer, Fazon, Lower Goose, Ozette, Samish, and St. Clair Lakes in 2012. This report summarizes temporal trends in bass mercury levels since the waterbodies were last sampled in 2007 (2001 for Lake Samish).
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
