RE: E-M:/ Fish from local waters are just fine

Unbelievable commentary.  

You can’t cut mercury from fish tissue, sorry.  No amount of filleting – unless you throw out the meat of the fish.  Doesn’t this guy have sons or daughters, or young grandchildren or nieces or nephews in his family that he cares about?

While Gary Towns may be a respected DNR employee and fisheries expert, I'd like to know what his toxicology credentials are.   As a former Exec Sec of the Mich Toxic Substances Control Commission, I find your cavalier description of eating fish till the dunlop syndrome sets in a bit disconcerting.  How about some one from Community Health weighing in on this one?  Issues about sensitive populations, etc comes to mind among others.
