Found at Changi! This new genus and new species of sea anemone is described from Singapore! And thus proudly named Synpeachia temasek. Singapore's wild shores are home to animals that are new to science. So much more to discover and learn!

Fences will be built on the landward side of Mandai and Kranji mangroves. Probably similar to the ones built along northern Pulau Ubin.

More dead farm fishes washing up at Lim Chu Kang this morning.
20 October 2014
Lots of dead farm fishes washed up at Lim Chu Kang today. Lots also washed up at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.
I am impressed by the immediate cleanup of dead farm fishes from Lim Chu Kang. This is what I saw on 17 Oct (Fri). A line of freshly dead farm fishes washed up on the mid-water mark, with lots more fishes floating in the water as far as the eye could see.
And this is what I saw on 18 Oct (Sat). No freshly dead fishes anywhere on the shore.
But there are still a lot of unaswered questions about the recent fish deaths and how AVA is dealing with fish farm trash. Here are details of my correspondence with AVA on the issues.
It was a relief not to see masses of dead fishes at Lim Chu Kang on both Saturday and Sunday. This portion of the shore had a line of dead farmed fishes on Friday.
