September 23, 2014 Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has lifted an advisory concerning fishing in Bridgeport Harbor and nearby Yellow Mill Creek. The advisory was put in place Sept. 13, following a fire in the 2100 block of Seaview Avenue. This analysis showed there is no public safety risk associated with the handling and consuming of fish taken from these waters. The closure of shellfish beds in the area, which was ordered by the Department of Agriculture, remains in place.
