Description The Washington State Department of Ecology's Risk Assessment Forum developed this report in response to requests from within and outside the agency for more consistent application of fish consumption rates in Ecology's risk assessments, screening criteria, and risk-based standards. This document provides an evaluation of fish consumption surveys conducted among Washington State residents, a review of applicable policy directives, and recommendations for consumption rates that are to be used in Ecology's risk-based guidelines and risk assessments.
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.
