    Hi,

    I am thinking of finally trying to learn to fish this summer. Have had a fishing boat for a number of years but this year, I am going to hit the (Puget) Sound and try to catch both bottom fish (flounder, etc) and Salmon. In the middle of my research on how to catch the bottom fish, I landed on a number of blogs, etc. talking about high amount of pollution in resident salt water fish due to pollution from urban areas. The place where I will be fishing is 20 to 30 miles from nearest major city/dumps but the fish apparently still has fair amount of PCB and such. I found a very detailed report that measured the toxin levels. It only reports on the amounts and not what is safe and what is not.
