Seeking protocol for cyanide testing of fish

Dear Colleagues:

I am seeking out an easy to use protocol for testing reef fish for cyanide
use. Some of the ornamental aquarium trade exports from FIJI would like to
utilize cyanide testing as a means to ensure their stock is ecologically
collected, and they need a protocol that will provide a positive or negative
for the presence of cyanide in fishes.

Ideally, this would be a simple test, that can be used in the field.
However, a more complex protocol could be taught, so any information would
be appreciated.

Thank you.
