Expanded "forever chemical" testing concerns commercial anglers

A commercial fishing operator from Door County calls plans to test for so-called “forever chemicals” in fish stocks disturbing.  The Department of Natural Resources has ordered a Marinette County manufacturer to test for PFAs in fish from public waters. Testing of fish from ponds on company property showed elevated levels of PFAs in some tissue samples.  Charlie Henriksen, owner of Henrisken Fisheries in Sister Bay, is concerned about new contamination coming after signs of progress in controlling pollutants on Green Bay.

 

 

 

The Menominee River was also recently delisted by the Environmental Protection Agency as a location of concern for chemical pollution.
