Mr Mengel, My parents had a thriving tilapia and catfish farm some ten years ago in West Africa. We have decided to restart that farm but the fish have not been cared for since then. The fish & catfish have worms that look like thread. Our concern is, do we kill the live fish and start over or can they be treated? We also need to know where we can purchase tilapia and catfish in the Southeast USA(Georgia). I've tried several times to contact the people at Aurburn University. Are there any other sources of information? Kindly send those "How-to" publication to me at: Klade Baker 550 Clearwater Place, Lawrenceville GA 30044 Thanks!!!
