Fish Are Important for Superior Health (FISH) Project
To participate in the FISH Project
Participants who complete their visit will receive a Visa gift card!
Fishing and fish-eating are important parts of the life and tradition of the North Shore communities. Currently women of these communities can enroll in a free program that educates them to avoid contaminants in fish while continuing to eat fish.
Sawtooth Mountain Clinic, Grand Portage Health Services, Grand Portage Trust Lands, Cook County North Shore Hospital and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), are partners in the Fish Are Important for Superior Health (FISH) Project – a clinic-based program for women ages 16 to 50.
A recent study showed that 10% of Northeastern Minnesota babies tested had mercury in their blood above the level considered safe.
Women who participate in the FISH Project will learn about:
- The health benefits of eating fish while reducing their exposure to mercury and other contaminants in fish.
- Participants will also learn how much mercury contamination and healthful omega fatty acids they have in their bodies and what they can do to reduce mercury and increase omega 3s, if necessary.
To register as a participant or for more information, call:
Sawtooth Mountain Clinic (218) 387-2330
