The Arkansas Department Of Health has issued the “fish consumption advisory” after walleye caught on Bull Shoals Lake and Norfork Lake tested positive for mercury.

The fish were found to contain levels of mercury that have the potential to put human health at risk, according to a Thursday release.

The Arkansas Department of Health stated that “pregnant women, small children, and those who frequently eat walleye from Bull Shoals or Norfork lakes” are the highest at risk.

The Arkansas Department of Health will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 5 p.m., at the Donald W. Reynolds Library in Mountain Home to address the public’s concerns.
