It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

To all those who are asking how to determine if a fish is double-dead or part of the recent fish kill, here are some tips:

1. The eyes of a doule-dead fish are not clear and they are reddish
2. The gills (hasang) are pale. Fresh fish have red gills.
3. When pressed, the flesh of a double dead fish is soft. It should be hard.
4. The scales of a double dead fish are no longer shiny.

The government has warned the public against buying and eating of double-dead fish as it may cause food poisoning and diarrhea.
