Amah made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Wednesday.

“The basic step is that you need to change your water regularly and feed the fish regularly to prevent mortality because fish are cannibalistic in nature.

“Fish mortality can also be prevented by the addition of salt to the pond water as salinity in water helps prevent the death of fish.

“It can get messy when bacteria overruns your fish pond. Salt fights bacteria in fish water and without it, bacteria will spread and this will lead to the death of the fish in their numbers.
