Date:
25/09/2018

Seqwater has advised fishers to release and not eat fish from Hinze Dam because of naturally-occurring mercury.

This follows recent results from routine Seqwater fish testing.

The level of mercury in the water is low and well within safe limits for drinking.

An Seqwater spokesman said fishing in Hinze Dam should be catch-and-release only.
