India to Use Fish to Fight Mosquitoes

From Deutsche Presse-Agentur

Municipal authorities, fighting a losing battle against mosquitoes and malaria, have decided to release thousands of little mosquito-eating fish into Calcutta drains to check the growing problem.

Reports Tuesday said that gappi fish, which eat mosquito larvae, have been tested with success in certain mosquito-infested areas.

Other species of fish also are likely to be imported from African countries in the onslaught against the insects, the reports said.
