The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has released its annual Fish Consumption Advisory for fish caught in the state. Chemical contaminants -- mercury, PCBs, chlordane and lead -- remain the main concern. Also, fishermen, please refrain from putting lead tackles in your mouth.

One key addition to this year's warning: Walleye from bodies of water across the state should be consumed only once a month because of mercury contamination.
