No bulk of spoilt fish
There is no mass contamination of flying fish or large amounts of spoilt fish being put on the market.
This was the response of president of the Barbados National Union of Fisherfolk Organizations (BARNUFO), Vernel Nicholls, to reports that over 500 000 flying fish might have to be dumped following discovery of contamination of fish from a supplier this week.
“It is an individual supplier who has contributed to the situation that is going on right now. It is not the mass majority of people who have these fish that they are calling spoilt fish,” she said.
“It only takes one individual to do the wrong thing and it will destroy the whole industry,” Nicholls added. (LK)
