Further to yesterday’s story about hundreds of dead fish having washed up in Walvis Bay, the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources has cautioned the public against eating them until the cause has been determined. Noting that the mass death was likely caused by a pytoplankton bloom, the ministry explained that it is conducting water analysis to identify the phytoplankton species present in the Walvis Bay Lagoon and Harbour to determine whether they are toxic or not.
