Korea's Protest Culture

Doing my part to promote Korea's protest culture I point to this caption:

Flatfish and gray mullet lie on the road in Gwanghwamun, downtown Seoul on Tuesday after fishermen dumped them in protest against government measures following the detection of the carcinogenic dye malachite green in domestic freshwater fish. 

Click through to see the picture. What exactly is a green dye doing in fish, and why are the farmers protesting not being able to use it?
