#2333: Red tide and illnesses from fish (fwd)


Since the annual OAS conference was held in Haiti in June 1995, at which some 
foreigners were rushed to the hospital because of food poisoning, and the 
subsequent advisory placed in the Nouvelliste by the government of Haiti 
regarding the dangers and severity of RED TIDE, we do not eat certain fish 
(ie. red snapper) during months that don't have an "R" in them such as May, 
June, July, August.  For those of you with stories of getting ill, can you 
recall during what months this occurred and what type of fish it was.
