Food safety caution for River Derwent anglers

Recreational fishers in the River Derwent have been warned against eating certain fish and shellfish due to heavy metal contamination by the Director of Public Health, in a recent brochure produced by the Derwent Estuary Program (DEP).  The brochure recommends that anglers should not eat ANY shellfish or bream from the River Derwent (including Ralphs Bay and Browns River), and to limit their consumption of flathead and other Derwent-caught fish such as brown trout to once a week.
