Soldevilla 10:17 AM, Oct 16, 2020

My research team currently studies a computer algorithm that detects formalin in Bangus (Chanos chanos).

I would like to request for pictures of Bangus, with or without formalin treatment. I would also like to suggest that these pictures shall only consist of their eyes, and for each picture there is an indicated time frame from when the fish was analyzed. If possible, we hope to obtain at least 100 pictures.

Hoping for your consideration of this request. Praying for your continued safety!

Sincerely yours:
