The Oregon Health Authority issued a health advisory Wednesday to warn people about toxic contaminants found in lamprey, a snake-like fish that is eaten by Indigenous people as a cultural and ceremonial food.

The advisory sets limits for the first time on how many lamprey people can safely eat from the Columbia River and its tributaries in Oregon.
