Well here on the East Coast of the Mid Atlantic/ New England, there is a problem with Mergansers having high concentrations of PCB's. PCB's are a suspect carcinogen. I personally know that in PA it is strongly suggested that you not eat Mergansers because in Upstate New York the merganser population as a whole has a high concentration of PCB's. The New York population migrates through PA on its way south. Your population may not be located in areas that have had problems with PCB's. The PCB's concentrate in mergansers because of their location on the food chain and what they eat, small fish.
