Caltex Kurnell – Botany Bay area
PFAS has been detected in some species of fish caught in Botany Bay and the Georges River however, the number of potential sources of PFAS in the area makes it difficult to attribute the detections to individual sources.
Residents can continue to fish in Botany Bay and the Georges River but should follow precautionary dietary advice when eating their catch. A detailed factsheet outlining the precautionary dietary advice can be found below.
