Cambodian fishermen hooking the big ones - on drugs

Phnom Penh - Cambodian fishermen were using bait laced with "an addictive substance" to turn the one that got away into the one that came back for another fix, local media reported Friday.

Fishermen in north-western Banteay Meanchey province on the Thai border, around 450 kilometres from the capital, were luring their prey with fermented fish paste laced with drugs, but their more ethical colleagues were crying foul, the Khmer-language daily Kampuchea Thmey reported.

The bait, which is made in neighbouring Thailand and Vietnam, instantly turned popular table species such as elephant fish from fighters into ecstatic love junkies that practically jumped into the boat, the paper said.

Banteay Meanchey provincial governor Orn Sum said by telephone that he doubted the veracity of the reports, but if true, anglers caught dealing drugs to the province's fish population could face legal consequences.

If they dont want to jump in the boat they can just call in to "Happi Herb Piza" and get a fix. :o
