On 2 August 2018 Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) updated its advice about fish consumption from the Heart Morass area to include the Latrobe River in East Gippsland.

People who have eaten fish, eels or ducks are not considered to be at risk of any adverse health effects.

This precautionary advice was issued following testing of PFAS levels in plants and animals undertaken by Defence near RAAF Base East Sale.
