(Hassel. 2002) Recommended Fish Consumption Guidelines for Sport Caught Minnesota Fish: o You can't see, smell or taste the mercury or PCBs in fish. o Release large fish and keep smaller fish. They are less contaminated and taste better. o Contaminants build up in large predator fish like walleye or northern. Eat less big fish at meals and eat them less often. o Perch and panfish like sunfish and crappies are less contaminated. o PCBs concentrate in fatty tissues. Remove skin and trim fat from fillets. (Note: removing the skin also removes the N-3s.) o Broil, bake or grill fish to remove PCBs. Poaching or deep-frying only removes some of the contaminants. o A 1993 study at Michigan State University found that trimming and cooking Great Lakes fish could reduce contaminants by as much as 81% in some cases (MN Sea Grant Outreach.) o Mercury binds to the fish meat.

I am excited to be part of the Big Stone County Extension family and the University of Minnesota Extension Service. I am a native of Central California where ,' I grew up on a dairy farm and was a 4-H member for 11 years. My projects included dairy, sewing, cooking, mini-gardens, and c/afts. I was a junior leader for dairy. I was a member of the Monache FFA for four years where I was in dairy and on the livestock judging team. I also served on the Tulare County Junior Fair Board for four years. I graduated from the College of the Sequoias with an AS Degree in Animal Science and am presently working on my Agriculture Ed. Degree. I presently reside in Milbank, SD on a dairy farm with my family. I am excited about sharing my 4-H experiences with today's 4-Hers and hearing what they have experienced and gained through 4-H themselves. I would like to wish the 4-Hers good luck at the County and State Fairs and I am looking forward to meeting you. IT'S FAIR TIME, HAVE FUN!
