It is not fair to say that the proposed ban is an appropriate action because salted fish sold at the market is risking the health of customers.
The displaying of salted fish at the market is a mere offer. Customers are the ones who should decide whether or not to buy the fish. Cigeretes are as harmful to peoples' health as salted fish yet the there is no concerned that cigarette shouldn't be sold in shops through out the country.
What actually do advocates of the ban mean when they consider salted fish as a health risk? If the responsible authorities are serious about public health, then do so without any discrimination.
