On May 22 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, EPA Region 10 will hold a webinar for tribal governments throughout the U.S. to share information on a survey of tribal fish consumption in Idaho completed in 2016. The survey characterized current fish consumption rates (FCRs) using state of the art statistical modeling methods as well as historic (i.e., heritage) FCRs. EPA will present the survey methodology and findings. Joe Oatman from the Nez Perce Tribe, one of the four tribes that participated in the survey, will offer tribal perspectives on the study and use of its resulting data in environmental regulation. The surveys, along with other background information, can be found on EPA’s Idaho Tribal Fish Consumption Survey website. Join the webinar on May 22 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time through EPA’s Adobe Connect Idaho Tribal Fish Consumption Survey website. Audio is also available by calling 202-991-0477, and enter conference code 3335164.

CONTACTS: Mary Lou Soscia • 503-326-5873 • soscia.marylou@epa.gov; Lon Kissinger • 206-553-2115 • kissinger.lon@epa.gov
