Mercury still in coastal fish

Jorge Rodríguez, 29, of Port Lavaca, tosses a net into Lavaca Bay at Point Comfort. Rodriguez said he fishes the waterway at least once a week. He said he was aware of the warning about it being unsafe to eat the fish, so he releases everything he catches.

The owner of Miller’s Seafood in Port Lavaca will speak Thursday at the Lavaca Bay Foundation meeting.

Curtis Miller, a second- generation seafood distributor, will share his impression of the productivity of the bay over the years.

The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Nautical Landings Marina Community Room.

R.J. Shelly, who has been with the Texas Department of State Health Services monitoring Lavaca Bay for more than 20 years, spoke at the foundation’s January meeting.

The foundation is a nonprofit seeking to preserve, protect and enhance the environment and recreation of the bay and its tributaries for all users.
