Fishing advisory issued for Shenango river

A disturbing discovery prompts a warning about the fish in one nearby river.

The Pennsylvania Departments of Environmental Protection, Agriculture and Health have announced a "do not eat" advisory for all fish caught in the Shenango River in Mercer and Lawrence counties.

The advisory was issued after "extremely high levels" of PCB were found in samples. The source of the contamination has not been found.

This expands an advisory already in place for muskie, carp and catfish.
