Bingo. More people are taking note of this. The underlying problem is the disparity between EPA and FDA standards. When the EPA lowered the PCB threshold several years back, they forced the states to comply by threatening to withhold Pittman/Robertson and Dingall/Johnson funds. Of the Great Lake states, only MI resisted, for a while. Thus, the EPA action threshold is 0.2 ppm, while the FDA maintains a 2.0 ppm.

Also something to think about. How often and under what circumstances does the FDA check PCB levels in commerical fish?

If you are looking for more underlying information about this, contact Dan Thomas at Great Lakes SportFishing Council. He would be a good source on this issue.
