Is caught fish safe to eat? I am talking about bluefish and striped bass in the LI area(including NYC, not Manhattan, more like Queens and Brooklyn) and NJ. I am a young angler(just old enough to drink) who caught a few large fish this year and ate them. I heard some fish contain PCB, mercury, and DDT. Will I died if I ate more than a pound of bass and bluefish each day. I still more than 30 pounds of frozen fish.
