Great Lakes Consortium Fish Consumption Advisory Enhancement: Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grant - EH: Minnesota Department of Health

Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grants

In 2010, the Great Lakes Consortium for Fish Consumption Advisories began work on a grant to support enhanced fish consumption advisory programs in the Great Lakes basin. The project, funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), includes collaborative work by all member-states of the Consortium, and projects in partnership with Cornell and Clarkson Universities. Project activities were completed in 2016. The project had three main objectives:

Objective 1: Improve the public’s understanding of risks and benefits of consuming fish by effectively communicating fish advisory information.

Objective 2: Improve fish monitoring by producing comparable data basin-wide, and filling data gaps for non-routine contaminants of concern and nutrients in fish fillets.

Objective 3: Evaluate Risks and Benefits of Consuming Fish.
