Dioxin

Dioxin is the most toxic member of a large chemical
family of related dioxins and furans. Dioxin is an
unwanted industrial byproduct formed through
numerous processes, including production of
chlorinated phenol products such as herbicides, the
incineration of municipal solid waste, and creation of
paper products using bleach. Most of what we know

 (1) High-risk individuals include infants, children, pregnant women, nursing mothers and women of childbearing age.
 (2) One meal is defined as an eight-ounce serving
 (3) Eat only the fillet portions of the fish. Use proper trimming techniques to remove fat, and cooking methods that allow
     juices to drain from the fish (e.g., baking, broiling, frying, grilling, and steaming). See text for full description.
 (4) Sunfish includes bluegill, pumpkinseed, and redbreast sunfish.
 (5) No harvest means no taking or attempting to take any blue crabs from these waters.
 Note: Not all species were found or analyzed in all water bodies, or inadequate data were available to list some species.
 (P) = Pinelands Area
* Selling any of these species from designated water bodies is prohibited in New Jersey.


   NOTE: To reduce your exposure, eat those fish with the lowest meal restrictions. Do not combine meal restrictions. (For example, if you eat multiple
   species or catch fish from more than one area, the recommendation guidelines for different species and different locations should not be combined.)
