New York, Feb 18 (ANI): A recent trip to the US brought a whole new sense of excitement to the Indian fishing community as the Indian fishermen have taken to the seas to gather their catch of the day.
“We can only wait for the next season,” said Vimal Singh, owner of a fishing boat.
Singh said he decided to visit the states of Wisconsin, Michigan and New York after visiting the States of Wisconsin and Minnesota last year.
“I’m here because the US is a great place to fish, especially the Big Five states,” he said.
“They are also big fishing countries, so there are lots of good fish to eat.”
While the fishermen gathered for their next catch, a team of researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) took pictures and video of their catches.
The footage was then uploaded on YouTube.
The researchers concluded that while most fish species are edible, a few species are quite toxic.
“Fish are highly concentrated in certain places.
The species are mostly found in rivers, lakes, and estuaries,” said David Gossett, a professor of biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a co-author of the study.
Gossett and his team are currently working on a study on the impact of these toxins on aquatic ecosystems.
“It’s interesting to know what’s happening to these ecosystems and the fishes,” he added.
The scientists have also created a list of the top 50 poisonous fish in the United States, as well as a list with information about fish poisoning.
According to the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), more than 4,000 species of fish are listed as dangerous, meaning they are listed for a high level of threat.
These include the blacktip catfish, yellowfin tuna, and the blackfish.
The number one fish in NMFS’ database, the yellowfin catfish is also listed as the number one poisonous fish species.
The researchers said that the fish they found on the Wisconsin shores, in particular, had been caught in rivers.
“This fish was very tasty and it was not hard to find,” said Singh.
The team also caught the same fish in Lake Michigan.
“There was no sign of the poisonous fish we found,” he told The Times Of India.
Sing and his crew caught the fish in several locations, including the Big Lake and the Hudson River.
“In the Big Lakes we caught some fish which were quite poisonous,” he explained.
The Wisconsin fishermen are planning to fish in other lakes and rivers.
