Fish TB from Chinatown fishmarkets?

I know this is not aquarium related but I wanted to see if I can get confirmation on this. The health department is only calling it skin infection but it looks (the infections) and sounds like people are getting TB from handling fish from these Chinatown markets. I just bought and handled some fish yesterday

It's caused by Mycobacterium marinum, isn't that Fish TB?
