TABLE 1: 1995 Fish/Shellfish Advisories by Contaminant
* Many advisories cover more than one contaminant. As with the 1994 version, the EPA's 1995 NLFWCA does not allow a determination of the total number of distinct ifhs consumption advisories, so the above numbers cannot be totalled.
2 This total reflects EPA's 1995 NLFWCA data. Of these 55 advisories, 18 are downstream of bleached chemical mills according to 1995/1996 state environmental and health authority data.
3 Includes hexachlorobutadiene, pentachlorophenal, and tera, penta, and hexachlorobenzenes.
4 Includes creosote, gasoline, multiple pollutants, organic chemicals, cadmium, organo-metallics, priority organics, toxaphene, and volatile organics.
