Frustrated fishmongers in the Western region have refuted claims that the dolfins washed ashore a few days ago along some beaches of Ghana’s shoreline during Easter did not get into the hands of unscrupulous people for sale in the markets, but were all collected and disposed off by the Food And Drugs Authority (FDA).
Information gathered by newstodaygh.com from very reliable sources have confirmed that a significant number of the fishes were able to make their way to homes around where the incident took place.
Explaining the reasons for their actions, some of the aggrieved fish mongers stated that they received no information indicating that the fishes, and dolphins were either poisoned or harmful for human consumption. They quickly organized themselves to buy the fish for sale at the beach.
In Case You Missed:
According to one of the fish mongers, she spent as much as GHc4,000 to get the big fishes to prepare and later sell at the market.
She also recounted how due to the size of the fishes, she had to task someone to cut them into smaller pieces that cost her an additional GHc200.00.
She therefore pleaded that they (fish mongers) may lose their heavy investments should it eventually come out that the fishes are unwholesome, so government should try and help them recoup their money.
From other reliable sources, some of the big fishes had been smoked and already sent to the market for sale.
