Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- A consumption advisory has been lifted for channel catfish caught from the Monongahela River.

Channel Catfish are the only change to the 2010 West Virginia sport fish consumption advisory compiled by the state.

Channel catfish on the river now fall under a statewide advisory.

It recommends limiting consumption to two meals per month for catches greater than 17 inches, and one meal per week for smaller catches, due to mercury and pcb concerns.
