Default Great Lakes fish

I was coming back from a lacrosse game yesterday in Canada when I passed this restaraunt in which the sign said "fresh lake Erie perch daily". But I thought that all great lakes fish had dangerously high levels of PCB's making them unsafe for human consumption. About 20 years ago we used to eat lots of fish from Lake Erie but not anymore. Any insight?

I was under the impression that it had gotten a whole lot better. I remember them saying don't eat like more than a very few ounces a month and pregnant women shouldn't eat fish from there at all. Zebra mussels may have had something to do with it but I was of the same mind as you and the not eating it.

ya got to check the DEC website,and those "great lake" perch were probably imported from europe,its a common trick the resturants use
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
