I applaud your great work with the kids! However, before you eat those stripers please note the CDF&G Advisory:

CDF&G Health Advisory for San Francisco Bay and Delta Region

Because of elevated levels of mercury, PCB’s, and other chemicals, the following interim advisory has been issued. Detailed information can be found at:

Adults should eat no more than two meals per month of San Francisco Bay sport fish, including sturgeon and striped bass caught in the delta. (One meal for a 150 pound adult is about 8 ounces).

Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant, nursing mothers, and children under age six should not eat more than one meal of fish per month. In addition, they should not eat any striped bass over 27 inches or any shark over 24 inches.
