    I am sure that the warnings from the DFW and dept. of health apply to all ocean caught fin fish . Certain spieces have their own gamut of problems . Torrey Pines is no different than any other ocean area . I have had N N N O O OH P R O OB B:L E M S eating fish from TTORREYYY PiNnnEES at Alllllll . Good Luck ! And enjoy a meal of your catch !

    igor4d Only problem is when it rains heavily the water may be polluted from the city run off. But it doesn't last too many days.

    Other than poisonous glares from kelp huggers if they see you carrying a corbina off the beach....no hazards.

    I got info from https://www.waterboards.ca.gov/sandiego/

    Hi Igor,

    Thank you for your question and – yes – it’s generally safe to eat the fish you catch, but it’s good to be aware that a few species tend to have higher levels of chemical contaminants.

    According to the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), it’s safe to eat the fish you catch from Torrey Pines Beach if you follow their fish advisory.

    The fish advisory that applies to Torrey Pines Beach applies to the whole California coastline. It shows that most commonly caught fish are safe to eat 1-6 times a week. But mercury and PCBs are a concern in sharks and certain rockfish (Black and Yellow, China, Copper, and Gopher), so to be on the safe side, children (1-17 years old) and women (18-49 years old) should avoid eating sharks and those rockfish, and men (18+ years old) and women (50+ years old) should eat sharks and those rockfish no more than once per week. Also, it’s always best to eat skinless fillets.

    You can see the fish advisory for California Coast here:

    https://oehha.ca.gov/media/downloads/advisories/coastalposter092718.pdf


    You can find advisories for other places you might want to fish (e.g., for Mission Bay, San Diego Bay, other places in California) here:

    https://oehha.ca.gov/fish/advisories


    You can see a brief summary about contaminants in fish and shellfish in the San Diego Region here:
