Mad Fish Disease?

Could humans catch mad fish disease from eating farm raised fish fed with pellets made from infected beef product? A Louisville, Ky researcher thinks it could be possible.

Writing in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, Robert P. Friedland suggests that farmed fish could transmit Creutzfeldt Jakob disease - the human form of mad cow disease - if they are fed with pellets rendered from cows. He is urging government regulators to ban feeding cow meat or bone meal to fish until the safety of this widespread practice can be confirmed
