CIGUATERA (Fish toxin warning)

The risk of contracting ciguatera has been minimized in Queensland.
 Reef fish are no longer permitted to be filleted at sea.
This means suspect fish cannot be mixed  (illegally) with other fillets as easily as before.
Ciguatera found in large Spanish Mackerel will slowly kill a domestic cat over 48 hours.
