I found this quite interesting. If you blow-up the map, you can see where PFAS chemicals are found near you and affecting fish and wildlife.

You’re welcome, Rip. I was somewhat relieved to see no dots where I usually fish. How about you?

I wasn’t sure, Bob, so I tried to play it safe. I’ve been warned before and I guess I was just a little gun shy.
Thank you, sir. I thought the site was very interesting.

Around here, they keep talking about removing dams from the Brandywine River to allow analogous fish access to traditional spawning waters. One of the biggest problems they encounter is the release of chemicals from sediments that are up to hundreds of years old. Mercury from paper mills, PCBs from electricity suppliers etc. These would all be released into the ecosystem if the dams were removed.

Certainly makes one wonder why those companies are not required to provide clean up. I know in some cases, the companies no longer exist. That should be where the EPA comes into play.

I guess I made a mistake thinking that the effects on more than just fishing was not suitable for the MAIN section.

There are a few down here but we catch all the ones from Minnesota on down to the gulf. Who knows what's in the Mississippi.

No mistake Jer, more like cautious I would say. Besides better to be safe than get a nasty gram!!!

Watch the hits the thread gets even after the replies slow down to a crawl and you will see more folks are getting it than one could imagine.
