UW SRP Releases Video Series About how to Fish Safely and Legally on the Duwamish River

Fishing for fun, food, and cultural connection is a way of life in the Pacific Northwest.

With fishing and other outdoor activities now allowed as part of the state's phased approach to reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic, recreational fishing is ramping up on local waterways.

But for those fishing the heavily polluted Lower Duwamish Waterway in Seattle, the fish they catch come with unsafe levels of carcinogens that include heavy metals and PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls.
