// The local mining threatens the giant otters as well as the fish in the river. Adi and his team take fish samples to survey mercury contamination and quantify fish availability but it isn’t always easy. Carnivorous fish like piranhas have razor-sharp teeth. Once caught, they wait for an opportunity to bite our fingers as we remove them from the nets.
