Fewer dead fish

DFO is still trying to figure out what has been killing sea life in St. Mary’s Bay but does say whatever it is appears to be slowing.

The Department says fewer reports are coming in of new sightings of dead fish…and there seem to be fewer dead animals as well.

Alain d’Entremont in Digby is encouraged by the news. He’s the chief operating officer of O’Neil Fisheries in Digby. He told the CBC he’s been getting calls from customers around North America wondering if Digby scallops are safe to eat. He’s been assuring them that yes they are…that he’s still eating them and feeding them to his kids. He also tells them about all the work going into the investigation by DFO and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
