State health officials have issued a warning asking people to limit their consumption of three species of fish from two East Texas lakes.
Health authorities issued the warning after lab tests detected elevated levels of mercury in the three species.
The testing was done after the Parks and Wildlife Department alerted health officials to the possibility of elevated mercury levels.
The advisory by the Department of State Health Services is for freshwater drum and largemouth bass from Clear Lake and Hills Lake -- and bowfin from Clear Lake.
Officials say there's no risk of mercury poisoning from fishing, skiing or swimming in the lakes.
