    nope, not directly due to fish imports, but rather from humans. It spreads from direct bodily fluid contact. Actually not easy to spread, unlike cold and flu that you can catch just by sitting in the same boring boardroom.

    My father was in Liberia until a couple weeks ago when his company decided to get out. Ebola situation is pretty dire there now. Really difficult to spread, except when the population relies on witchdoctors vs actual doctors, and has a tradition of touching bodies at funerals.
