Veterinary yet to release official laboratory result of washed ashore fishes
Dr Bashirru Bo Kikimojo said, even though his outfit is done with its investigations, it is yet to release it.
The Veterinary Service of Ghana says it is yet to release laboratory result of the fishes that were washed ashore over the weekend.
A lot of dead fish have washed ashore on April 2, 2021, at the Osu Castle beach.
A number of dolphins have also washed ashore in the Western Region on April 4, 2021. Authorities estimate that about 120 dolphins were affected.
No link has been drawn between the two events but fisherfolk along the coast in the Greater Accra Region have been urged to stay at home as investigations are being conducted to ascertain the cause of the incident.
The Minister for Fisheries and Acqua culture, Mavis Hawa Koomson on her Facebook page disclosed that the preminary investigation shows that the fishes were washed ashore as a result of stress.
However, in an interview with the Director of Public Health at the Vertinnary Services, Dr Bashirru Bo Kikimojo said, even though his outfit is done with its investigations, it is yet to release it.
He said the delay is a result of the Fisheries Minister’s order for all the results being conducted by the various authorized institutions to be ready and compiled to a single result before releasing the official one.
