The Idaho Fish Consumption Advisory Program

The Idaho Fish Consumption Advisory Program (IFCAP) informs Idahoans about possible contamination of lakes and streams that may affect fish and the humans who eat the fish. When contaminant levels are unsafe, IFCAP may recommend that people limit or avoid eating certain species of fish caught in certain places. IFCAP does this by issuing a Fish Advisory. 

What does a Fish Advisory mean to me? 

A fish advisory means that you should be aware of the amount of certain types of fish you should eat. A fish advisory doesn't mean that you should stop fishing in a favorite lake or stream. Idaho fish are an excellent source of good nutrition. We encourage you to keep fishing and continue enjoying healthy meals.
