Wichita State health officials are warning people not to eat the fish caught in some Kansas lakes and rivers.
The Wichita Eagle reported that people are being warned not to eat bottom-feeding fish taken from the Arkansas River between the Lincoln Street dam in Wichita and Cowskin Creek near Belle Plaine.
They’re also suggesting that people limit their consumption of any species of fish taken from the Little Arkansas River between Valley Center and the river’s confluence with the Arkansas River in Wichita. A monthly maximum of one eight-ounce serving for adults or one four-ounce serving for children is recommended.
The Department of Health and Environment and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism compiled this year’s consumption advisory.
