On March 14, 2019, Mark Fisher was working in a fish nursery in South Australia when he became concerned about the health of a few of his fish.
The water quality had become dangerously low, and Fisher was taking precautions to prevent more fish from getting sick.
“My son, Nick, came into the room and told me, ‘I think I’ve got a problem’,” Fisher says.
“I said, ‘You don’t have a problem, but you’re probably having an allergic reaction to some of the fish we’re feeding.’
He said, oh, my God, it’s the fish therapy.'”
I’m like, ‘Oh, my goodness, that’s a bit strange.’
But it’s really important to me to know what is going on, so I did my research and realised there were actually a lot of people who were having this problem.
“‘I think my fish has a reaction to something in the water,’ I said, and he was like, oh no, that is not good, we have to take a look at the fish.”
Fisher started a GoFundMe page and began making regular calls to people who had fish allergies, asking them to share their stories and get the word out.
He says he’s received a number of emails from people who are trying to get a diagnosis, and some have been referred to specialists.
“I’ve had people come to me and say they’ve had this fish reaction, or they’ve got fish allergies and they’ve gone into the aquarium to get tested, and they’re like, that fish is actually a toxic fish.
It’s not toxic to me, but if I’m allergic, it can cause this reaction,” Fisher says.”
So far, Fisher has received more than $10,000 in donations, which he has used to buy new fish and to buy more testing equipment.”
I got the Goldfish that had the same reaction that I did, but I had a different colour, and it was also a tad bit different from my regular Goldfish.””
It was a little bit different to what I was used to.
I got the Goldfish that had the same reaction that I did, but I had a different colour, and it was also a tad bit different from my regular Goldfish.”
The Goldfish is a popular breed of Australian fish.
Fisher had been working with a Goldwater Goldfish breeder for two years before the GoldFish died.
Fisher said he was worried that the breed would become overpopulated, with too many fish and too few fish tanks.
He had a new Goldfish, but it was sick and dying.
It was clear to him that the Goldwater breed had become too large, and there were too many of them.
“We’re now seeing Goldfish in the aquarium at the moment, we’re seeing Goldwater, Goldwater-Goldfish, and Goldwater with the Golds,” Fisher said.
“There are now Goldfish with all of the Gold colours and Golds with all the Gold colors.”
He is currently planning a new aquarium with a new breed of Goldfish and a different color.
He said he would also be keeping a few more Goldfish if they were available.
Fisher said he also plans to start a campaign to educate people about fish allergy and to share stories of people suffering from fish allergy.
“So far we have had a few people who’ve been referred by a vet and have now started a campaign, and I’d like to see more people who have been diagnosed with fish allergies take part in the campaign, because it’s such an important issue,” Fisher explained.
Fishing in the north-west has been booming over the past few decades, and the industry is now booming in South Australian waters.
But Fisher said it was not always so easy to be a successful fisherman.
“It’s not just about fish,” Fisher told 7.30.
“If you have an allergy to anything, you’re going to go through the whole ordeal, whether you’re a Goldie, a Gold, a Blue or a Yellow Goldie.
It takes a lot to get to where you are now, but there are a lot more fish out there than people think.”
