Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh is advising members of the public to exercise caution and good judgment as it relates to the purchasing and consumption of fresh fish on the local market.

Since the discovery of dead fish floating off waters of Mosquito Creek, some environmental activists have been telling T&T not to eat local fish.

Mr. Deyalsingh says the public health inspectorate of his ministry has been visiting fish depots cross country to ensure the proper standards were being adhered to.

The Environmental Management Authority says the conclusive findings of the test done on the fish are would be ready within the next two weeks.
