The state of Maine in May issued an advisory warning certain individuals against
The state of Maine in May issued an advisory warning certain individuals against eating fish from the state's lakes and ponds due to high levels of mercury found during testing. The warning was the latest in a series of advisories about Maine wildlife, including an advisory in February on dioxin in lobster tomalley, a 1986 warning about cadmium in moose and deer livers and a 1988 advisory on dioxin in the lower reaches of the state's three major rivers. Public apathy about the problems has greeted the advisories, and is partially to blame for a lack of funding for finding the roots of the pollution. Details.
