Fewer people getting ciguatera

This month Dr. Glenn Morris of the Emerging Pathogens Institute was featured in the Virgin Island Daily News for his work on a study of ciguatera fish poisoning, which was published in the May issue of the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. The study found that rates of ciguatera poisoning in the local population have decreased in the last 20 years, and they have yet to find a link between warmer water temperatures and the amount of people with ciguatera.
