State needs fishermen (age 50+) to take part in online survey

MADISON -- State health and natural resources officials are urging male anglers age 50 and older to respond to an online survey on where they fish, how much fish they eat, and how they hear about safe fish consumption tips.

To participate in the survey, male anglers age 50 or older who live in Wisconsin all or part of the year are encouraged to CLICK HERE.

Of the first 500 anglers who have already completed the survey, most have fished in Wisconsin waters for more than 10 years, and more than half caught some of their fish meals from the Great Lakes.

State officials want another 4,500 male anglers to participate. The survey was developed by the Department of Health Services and funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
