I recently caught my first tilefish and wanted to check out the Mercury Levels. I went to

U.S. FDA / Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition

and found the following quote:

:eek: Do not eat Shark, Swordfish, King Mackerel, or Tilefish because the contain high levels of mercury

I researched further and found a study that gives detailed information that shows Atlantic and Golden Tile fish are safe to eat.:clap: It is Gulf Tilefish that have the high levels of mercury. Details on both Atlantic Tilefish and Gulf Tilefish
US FDA - Mercury Level Data in Commercial Fish

Another case of Government misinformation!
