Abstract

In the last two decades a serious and severely damaging fish disease has been spreading through countries of the Asia Pacific region with dangerous consequences. Not only is this disease- now officially termed Epizootic Ulcerative Syndrome (EUS)- a scientific puzzle, it is also a worrisome social problem. Hundreds of inland fishermen, often the more marginalized amongst the fishworker communities in the affected countries, have been overnight deprived of their incomes, as consumers began to totally reject the disfigured, disease-stricken fish. It was in this context that the International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF), in co-operation with the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA), Bangkok, organized a two-day consultation on " EUS vis-á-vis the Environment and the People" in Trivandrum, India, during 25 and 26 May 1992. Enigma of EUS is a report of the consultation. While it does not purport to be a verbatim account of the two-day deliberations, it does record the important issues raised, the experiences exchanged and shared, and suggests how grand conclusions about as enigmatic a disease as EUS are ultimately elusive.
