Seafood contaminants testing

Received: 21 August 2020

My name is xx and I am a Research Assistant at the Marine Conservation Society. We are conducting a desk-based study looking at the current monitoring of contaminants (e.g. heavy metals, PCB's etc.) in commonly consumed fish and shellfish. We have been in touch with the FSA who have advised that we contact individual local authorities to gather information directly. As such, we are getting in touch with all local authorities to enquire about their seafood contaminants monitoring programmes.

Would it be possible to provide details of any relevant monitoring that you conduct in this area e.g. what species of fish/shellfish you sample, how often and for what substances?

Also, is there any raw data available from recent testing and do you have any summary of your recent findings on contaminant levels in fish and shellfish?

Please provide your response via this form. If there are any issues using the form or you would prefer to provide your response directly, please send your response to me via email.

I would be very grateful if you are able to help with some or all of this information, or if you could direct me to someone who can.
