the Oconee River and the testing of the fish down around Dublin. It seems some fishermen have been concerned about the sores and deformed gills on fish coming from the waters down that way so the State biologists have been looking into the problem. Their opinion, there is no problem. Everything is a natural occurrence for the time of year and the species of fish. Stress from spawning and the heat is amplifyng the natural fungi, etc. The fish are safe. oooh: What is your take on the matter?
