The Mercury in Fish Volunteer Sampling Program is fairly simple to perform but its value to the knowledge of the health of New Hampshire's water bodies is immeasurable!
First of all, all fish must be caught in a manner that is consistent with acceptable methods, laws and rules as stated in the NH Freshwater Fishing Digest, published by the NH Fish and Game Department.
It is important to note that while all fish species are welcomed in order to increase the database for evaluation, fish eaten by people are generally preferred because of human health effects.
