Dead fish at Lim Chu Kang Jetty

Scores of dead fish were spotted at Lim Chu Kang jetty yesterday morning.

Fish were seen either floating belly-up in the water or washed up along the shore with other rubbish, reported The Straits Times (ST) Online.

A pungent smell emanated from the area as well as from several black plastic bags at a rubbish bin nearby.

A boat belonging to the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) was docked at the jetty, while a kelong-like structure was combing the water.

Dead fish were also discovered by ST at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve yesterday, but in smaller numbers than at Lim Chu Kang.

This is not the first time that mass fish deaths have happened at a park or reservoir here.

Last July, hundreds of dead fish were seen in a stream in Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, believed to be due to the hot and dry weather.
