OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality has issued fish consumption advisories for fish taken from 32 lakes in Oklahoma.

The department said Thursday that each lake has some species of fish that contains levels of mercury that are unsafe for unlimited consumption by humans. DEQ says each lake has its own recommendation and that more information is available on the DEQ fish consumption webpage at www.deq.state.ok.us/CSDnew/fish/index.htm .

The advisories are the result of testing by DEQ with the cooperation of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
