Dynamite fishing identified as possible cause of fish kill in Negril River
- Categorized in: Mello FM News
The National Environment and Planning Agency ( NEPA) reports that it appears dynamiting was the cause of last month's fish kill in the South Negril River in Westmoreland.
The agency was responsible for conducting an investigation into the May 10 incident.
Fish samples from the river were analyzed by the Pesticide and Life Sciences Laboratories at the University of the West Indies (UWI).
Results indicate that the fish were impacted by some type of explosion, which suggests the possibility of dynamiting.
NEPA says the use of dynamite to harvest fish is a dangerous activity as it may cause harm to humans as well as the environment.
It's also an offence under Section 10 of the Wild Life Protection Act.
NEPA has therefore issued an advisory to persons to desist from the activity.
