New York Statewide Fish Collection: Contaminants in fish from the Buffalo River AOC

Dates

Start Date

End Date

Summary

Background: The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) plan to obtain data on chemical contaminants in fish from multiple Areas of Concern (AOCs) in New York State and use this information to evaluate fish consumption advisories, which are a critical component of most removal criteria for “Restriction on Fish and Wildlife Consumption” beneficial use impairments (BUI). The first project in the Buffalo River AOC will help determine if current fish consumption advisories are appropriate, if they can be modified, and if they support or do not support BUI removal as recommended in the June 2014 “Buffalo River AOC: A Monitoring Plan for the Delisting of Impaired Beneficial [...]

typeShort Project Description
valueThe USGS and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) are collecting data on chemical contaminants in fish tissues from several Areas of Concern (AOCs) across NY state, starting in the Buffalo River AOC during 2017, to help determine if current fish-consumption advisories are appropriate and if data support or do not support changing the status of the “Restrictions on Fish and Wildlife Consumption” BUI in various AOCs.
