Fish Contamination Education Collaborative (FCEC)
What We Do
Who We Are

Since 2003, the Fish Contamination Education Collaborative (FCEC) has been working to protect the most vulnerable populations in Southern California from the health risks of consuming DDT- and PCB-contaminated fish off the Palos Verdes Shelf Superfund site, one of the largest contaminated sediment sites in the nation. The FCEC, as a part of USEPA’s Institutional Controls (ICs) program, works in conjunction with monitoring programs and enforcement efforts to address human health risks posed by fish contamination.
Through outreach to affected communities, anglers and businesses, FCEC provides education on the dangers of consuming contaminated fish, as well as recommended portioning and preparation guidelines.
