State advisory now matches Mohawk warning to not eat fish from part of St. Lawrence River


AKWESASNE -- The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s (SRMT) Environment Division says they welcome an updated advisory from New York state warning not to eat fish caught from certain areas of the St. Lawrence River.

Tribal officials say the state warning reaffirms the tribe’s recommended guidelines from November 2013 which they released due to elevated levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and mercury in the St. Lawrence River.
