Prof. Dr. Mehmet Gökoğlu, stating that the poison in the back thorns of the traconia fish is very dangerous, “The Thracian fish bury themselves in the sand and their eyes and back thorns await their prey outside. Those who enter the sea can step on it without seeing it. Shoes must be worn when swimming around here, ‘he said.
In the Mediterranean, whose coasts have become dangerous due to the increase in the population of balloon and lion fish, traconia fish started to be hunted near the shore due to the increase in water temperature.
Traconia, which is among the dangerous species of the Mediterranean and has 4 different species, bury itself in the sand to fish.
Traconia fish, the most dangerous species of ‘if I have it’, awaits its prey by opening its dorsal fins, which contain poisonous spines, like a fan. Those who go into the sea to swim may be exposed to the poison on the back thorns of the fish when they step on them without realizing it.
‘ONLY EYES AND BACKPUTS KEEP OUT OF THE SAND’
Akdeniz University Faculty of Fisheries Faculty Member Prof. Dr. Mehmet Gökoğlu made warnings about fish to holidaymakers and residents of the city. Prof. Dr. Gökoğlu said, “Thracian fish are dangerous fish of the Mediterranean. They have venom glands on their dorsal fins and gill lids. There are 4 types of traconia fish in our waters. Especially the ‘varsam”, known as’ edrekene’ in the region, is the most dangerous among the 4 species. “only eyes and back spines await prey outside. They do not actively move. Those who enter the sea can step on it without seeing it or touch their feet while running away,” he said.
‘HOT WATER SHOULD BE APPLIED TO THE CONTACT AREA’
Stating that there were cases as a result of the contact of the fish, Prof. Dr. Gökoğlu said, “It is necessary to go to a health institution at the moment of contact. If not, hot water should be applied immediately to that area. 40-45 minutes of hot water application should continue. Especially in rocky areas and sandy areas, it is necessary to enter with shoes. “Before the dangerous species that came, 4 traconia species were among the risky and dangerous fish of the Mediterranean. Cases of this have happened in the past,” he said.
