AUSTRALIA - Reports of hundreds of thousands of two-head fish being born at a Sunshine Coast hatchery have prompted an expert to call for the ban of certain agricultural chemicals.

According to a report earleir today, fish veterinarian Doctor Matt Landos is calling for urgent bans and testing of agriculture chemicals he believes caused the birth of mutant two-headed bass at Boreen Point, says The Daily.
