The purpose of the manual is to provide overall guidance to States on methods for sampling and analyzing contaminants in fish and shellfish tissue that will promote consistency in the data States use to determine the need for fish consumption advisories. The manual provides guidance only and does not constitute a regulatory requirement for the States. It is intended to describe what the EPA Office of Water believes to be scientifically sound methods for sample collection, chemical analyses, and statistical analyses of fish and shellfish tissue contaminant data for use in fish contaminant monitoring programs that have as their objective the protection of public health. This nonregulatory, technical guidance manual is intended for use as a handbook by State and local agencies that are responsible for sampling and analyzing fish and shellfish tissue. Adherence to this guidance will enhance the comparability of fish and shellfish contaminant data, especially in interstate waters, and thus provide more standardized information on fish contamination problems.
