Seafood Consumption Guidelines

The waters surrounding Escambia County contain many species of fish and shellfish. Anglers and other seafood consumers should be aware of consumption advisories established by Florida Department of Health, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Although seafood can be part of a healthy diet, consumers should follow guidance documents such as the 2018 edition of “Your Guide To Eating Fish Caught In Florida.”
