Reasons Causing Sick Fish Still Lie Hidden

The concerns of the State Government and medical experts have become very serious as still the authorities are not clear with the reasons causing sick fish in Gladstone Harbor.

Reports are confirming severe rise in sick fish but State Government says no testing shows evidence stating dredging as the reason behind.

Whereas aquatic medical expert Dr. Matt Landos confirms he has evidence that dredging is responsible for diseased fish in Gladstone Harbor, off central Queensland.

It seems that both the parties are having their own explanations. Gladstone Ports Corporation blames 2010 floods for the outbreak of disease in fish. Then how can fish get sick due to dredging since they were not at all found in regions where dredging was carried out?

Explaining their side, Deputy Premier Mr. Jeff Seeney says that detailed tests do not show any link between dredging and sick fish.

"The work that's going on in Gladstone Harbour trying to identify why there are ill effects on the fish has to continue but there's nothing in the water testing data to suggest that these are a result of the dredging”, he added.

Reasons causing fish disease at central Queensland’s Gladstone Harbour are still a mystery, claims an independent scientific report.

Moreover, reports submitted by veterinary scientist Dr. Matt Landos have also confirmed a potential $20 million compensation claim that the aquatic medical expert has filed against the Queensland government.

The outbreak has severely disturbed the income sources of approx 60+ Gladstone fishermen and businesses, who are now urging the state government to compensate for all the losses that have been incurred due to the outbreak of lesions and cloudy eyes among fish and other marine animals as well in Gladstone Harbor.
