A drug has been developed which combats parasites that feed on the gills of the tiger puffer fish, a delicacy in Japan. This drug is said to be less toxic than formalin, the most often used drug these days to combat fish parasites. Researchers at Kumamoto Prefectural Fisheries Research Center and Meiji Seika Kaisha Ltd. hope to obtain governmental approval to sell the drug by next summer.
