By BBN Staff:  The Ministry of Health, in collaboration with the Department of Environment and the Belize Electric Company Limited (BECOL), has completed another assessment of mercury levels in fishes from the New River, Macal River, Mopan River and the Belize River, including Big Falls.

Since all mercury results have fallen below the recommended safe levels of 0.5mg/kg, the Ministry of Health is discontinuing the recommendations for the replacement of omega fatty acid which is now readily available through local fish consumption.  

The Ministry of Health assures the public that it remains watchful on this issue and will continue to issue the necessary advisories as required.  

The Ministry reminds the public to remain safe and follow the recommended weekly consumption of quantities of fish from the Macal, Mopan, Belize and New rivers, including Big Falls.
