PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The state of South Dakota has released new consumption advisories on where anglers might want to limit their consumption of certain fish.

They're based on 2013 test results and include walleye longer than 21 inches in Swan Lake, walleye longer than 17 inches in Long Lake and black crappie longer than 12 inches taken from Pudwell Dam.

The West Twin Lakes advisory for walleye longer than 18 inches and northern pike longer than 19 inches was expanded to include East Twin Lakes and the waters jointly referred to as Twin Lakes in the advisory listing.

The South Dakota departments of Health, Environment and Natural Resources and Game, Fish and Parks annually coordinate testing of fish for metals, pesticides and PCBs.
