Mercury in Yukon Fish
Data from recent studies has shown that Yukon fish are safe to eat. Harvesting fish also provides health, social, cultural and economic benefits to people in our communities. Fish in a number of Yukon lakes have been tested for mercury, and most of them are below Health Canada’s guideline for commercial fish.
