Dead fishes by the thousands in Chaguaramas

Dead fishes by the thousands in Chaguaramas

Date: May 11th , 2017

Dear Editor/Newsroom,

Fishermen and Friends of the Sea (FFOS) have received pictures today (Thursday 11th may 2017) which clearly show larger fishes such as catfish, are now washing up dead in addition, to the dead Sardines, Joshua and Herring which were observed for the past few days, covering the coastal waters of Chaguaramas from Island Property Owner’s Association to Almooring’s Fishing Depot. Many published reports and environmental entities have claimed that these fishes floating dead in Chaguaramas are dumped fish bait, FFOS are concerned that this is not the case. Today FFOS have collected samples of these dead fishes, to be tested at the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in Mt Hope. The cause of the death of these fishes must be determined to have a better insight on this environmental disaster occurring in Chaguaramas. Do you think these larger fishes resemble dumped fish bait? You be the judge
