More than a fisheries concern
I think this matter is serious and requires, in addition to a co-ordinated response by fisheries departments, a multi-sector response. It is entirely beyond the scope of fisheries departments alone as it is clearly a public health concern, e.g.
l water affairs departments in the affected countries ‘ what information might they have which could assist?
l health (especially public health) ‘ what have they noted so far? Are there any reported incidences arising from eating infected fish?
l then there is the question of political will. What are the political leaders at various levels doing about the matter?
May I take this opportunity to congratulate you for breaking this story?
This is the type of journalism that will move Africa forward. Keep us posted. Do not rest until this matter has been resolved.
Scared fish eater.
