I feed Molly Raw and was just wondering if it would be okay to feed her pickerel, pike, trout or perch. If I catch pickerel or perch I would obviously cut out the pricks from its back. I have been reading around and some sites say yes and some say no! The lakes I fish are north from her and have no cities or industries within 300kms and are very natural and clean. The ones who say no are saying that fresh fish have a high mercury content

The fish that have high mercury counts are those that feed on other fish - like Tuna (big HUGE things).

I would gut any fish just to make sure there aren't any ingested objects (like hooks) before giving them to her.

Brrr! That makes me feel cold just thinking about it..........my old dentist used to go ice fishing and would tell me all about it: sounded like you needed a lot of patience and lots of layers. She should be fine - I'm actually rather envious and wish I could snag some of your catch!!!
