Woman Found Eight Plastic Items In A Fish She Was About To Cook
Mahi-mahi fish are susceptible to mistaking plastic for food.
A woman in West Java, Indonesia was shocked when she cut open the stomach of a fish she was preparing to cook
Anna Nurjanah - a housewife and environmental campaigner - posted a video of her opening the mahi-mahi fish on her Instagram account, Volunteersindo, on 28 May.
"I bought this fish from a fisherman and this is what I found inside the fish. The future is now, we need to act now," the caption read.
The video has garnered over 280,000 views at the time of writing.
Anna's helper was cutting open the fish when he noticed that its organ looked strange
He called the woman over for a second opinion and said that "there is something in the belly of the fish", Detik reported.
The two then inspected the contents of the fish's stomach.
Anna was horrified to find eight items of plastic - including a plastic spoon, a candy bar wrapper, a plastic strap, and a deodoriser cap - in the fish
