Photos: Fish farm slime distressing bathers

Slime seems to be on the increase in our Maltese bays as a number of swimmers took to social media to protest the dire state of a number of bathing sites around the island. The slime seems to be originating from the fish farms along the Maltese coast and is causing distress amongst the bathers who are not finding unobstructed access to the water.

In August the FMAP had placed down oil booms to every fish cage to control the sludge.
