It is important to take caution and wear gloves, keep the suspected infected (if lesions are found) away from the rest of your catch and preferably wrap in foil and place in a bag if you don't have foil then double bag and keep on ice. Take your fish to the nearest participating tackle shop and they will place in there freezer and call ECS for pickup.
Note: Recent reporting of pathogens such as Vibrio vulnificus are prevalent in most seafood, especailly uuncooked and have been reported on Red Snapper lately. For personal health safety,if you choose to bring in your catch, please wear gloves and avoid touching the fish to prevent human infection.
Hired by Faegre Baker Daniels Law firm to educate and help Ken Feinburg of the Gulf Coast Claims Facilities, evaluate multipliers for the oyster reef and finfish BP Claims. ECS was a part of a local and regional team of experts with knowledge on a variety of species and ecological processes that provide the best professional opinions of the extend of the past, present and potential future physical, biological and socioeconomic damages from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. The project consisted of research and evaluation of the sites of claims of fishery losses.
