Oregon, Washington, and even land locked Idaho are using or in the process of implementing a FCR of 175grams/person/day and an Acceptable Cancer Risk of 1 incidence of cancer in a million people. Alaska’s water quality standards pale in comparison to these nearby states. But despite such lax regulations, Alaska’s waters remain some of the cleanest in the world. Other states in the Pacific Northwest must issue warnings about consuming fish because the tissue has become so filled with toxins. Alaska has the unique opportunity to keep its already clean water clean and protect these resources in perpetuity.
