2023 Guide to Eating Ontario Fish

On behalf of the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, we are pleased to inform you that we have released the 2023 fish consumption advisories through the online Guide to Eating Ontario Fish.

We encourage Ontarians to check the fish consumption advisories before they go fishing. This will help them to make informed choices about the types and amounts of fish that are safest to eat from over 2,600 Ontario lakes and rivers.

The updated guide features new and easier-to-use information, including:

  • the sizes and amounts of fish you can safely eat
  • how to quickly and easily choose the safest fish to eat
  • how to best prepare fish
  • special advice for children and people who are pregnant or may become pregnant

The government continues taking action to protect the health of Ontarians and improve the health of lakes and rivers in the province, including the fish that live in these waters.

Thank you for helping us share important information regarding safe fish consumption in Ontario. If you have any questions, please contact: fishguide@ontario.ca
