This report presents the results of an assessment of chemical pollutants in fish and the potential risks from consuming these fish. The fish were collected throughout the Columbia River Basin in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. After reviewing the results of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA. 1922a) 1989 national survey of pollutants in fish in the United States, EPA became concerned about the potential health threat to Native Americans who consume fish from the Columbia River Basin. The Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) and its member tribes (Warm Springs Tribe, Yakama Nation, Umatilla Confederated Tribes, Nez Perce Tribe) were also concerned for tribal members who consume more fish than non-Indians.
