Is it safe to eat Salmon Jerky caught from Ontario lake?

7 posts in this topic

Hi all

I just caught some salmon from Ontario Lake (Credit River).

I pan-fried it but was not taste good.  As 2nd option I want to make a salmon jerky using dehydrator.  Is it safe to eat salmon jerky made from Ontario Lake Salmon?

I can eat pen fried Ontario Lake Salmon but I am not so sure about jerky.

 

Thanks.

Smart man. Back during the love canal era there was great concern about e.d.b.’s in the lake system. Studies revealed that almost all the toxins in fish were concentrated in the fat of the fish. Smoking them removed enough toxin that made it safe to eat a few of them without concern. Probably wouldn’t want to eat them three times a day though.

You're probably safe enough if you don't overdo it, nothing is safe in excess (even water...), but I'd think that dehydrated dying fish would taste like concentrated death. Not on my bucket list.
