Samples of the mysterious dead fish in Tulagi have been sent the national public health laboratory for testing.

Zuleeyen Leinga from the Environmental Health Division told Island Sun yesterday tests are being carried out on the mysterious deaths.

“We have submitted the result report to the National Public Health Laboratory last week on Thursday for them to interpret the technical terms and give us a simplified explanation.

“Please take note that we had just completed a sample test on marine water and streams in Haleta, Boboro, Naeli and Maliali.

“We also interviewed few fishermen and community members in these villages.

“We thanked those respondents for their time. I also wished to thank the Medical staffs and police officer to be part of the team,” said Leinga.
