Touchless Handling for Safety and Best Practices
There is no need to touch the fish when you use these innovative handles that allow you to lift, move, and display fish without ever coming into skin-to-scale contact with them. Besides interrupting their mucous membrane, which is an essential part of the a fish’s immune system, touching a fish can be harmful to your own health. There are several very dangerous types of infections that can be contracted by being cut by a fish scale or fish fin.
Stay Safe From Fish-Handler’s Disease
There are two types of bacteria associated with what is known as fish handler’s disease. These bacteria are Erysipelothrix and Mycobacterium Marinum. Fish scales are sharp and can easily cut your skin when you are handling fish. The bacteria live on the surface of the fish and are thus easily transferred into the cut. Mycobacterium Marinum is also known as fish tuberculosis and is related to human tuberculosis, as well as leprosy. Stay safe from infection by using fish handles from FishDocktor.
Vibrio Can be Fatal
Vibrio is a very serious infectious disease caused by the Vibrio bacteria, which is commonly found on shellfish but can also be found in areas with small shellfish populations. It is found in warm water estuaries and marine waters. The mortality rate from this infection is a staggering twenty-five percent. Don’t become a statistic: if you are fishing in warm salt or brackish water, use the FishDocktor Handles to handle fish and stay safe.
Protect yourself from skin-on-scale related diseases, and use FishDocktor Handles for touch-free handling of all fish.
