DDT residue was found in all tested fish body parts including muscle and liver with the highest concentration found in the brains. The head usually reserved for those with best fish eating skills is considered most nutritious.
“Our evidence suggests recent use of DDT in the study area hence more strict control measures against the use of this chemical need to be put in place,” wrote Dr Omwenga and his team.
