Damn... that is shockingly depressing!
Six ounces of cooked fish is a meal, and some fish should only be eaten one meal a month!
I guess my fond childhood memories of the routine Sunday family fish fry are a not just a thing of the past due to low fish populations... it would probably wipe out the entire family now.
And to think that one of my Dad's favorites were blowfish. He called them "chicken of the sea". As a kid I ate a bunch o' blowfish but don't remember how they tasted... just that I wasn't allowed to clean them. Later in life I learned about Fugu and that puffers contain one of natures most lethal toxins in their guts... hence me not cleaning them. But "saxitoxin" is not what I remember the problem being... thought it was tetradotoxin or something like that. I guess puffers are a double whammy now.

I think it's partially BS. I know I tried to look up research on BFT and there was basically nothing. No one has any research programs on them, so the once a month thing is probably a rather safe than sorry deal. I find it hard to believe a lot of the offshore fish could be so full of mercury. I can't believe inshore is that bad though. One sea trout a month? Seriously?
