Mandai and Kranji mangroves to be fenced

Fences will be built on the landward side of Mandai and Kranji mangroves. Probably similar to the ones built along northern Pulau Ubin.
Tall fence that rings Pulau Ubin's northern shoreline
Why are the fences being built? What will be impact on the mangroves and shores there?

Lots of dead farm fishes washed up at Lim Chu Kang and Sungei Buloh

Lots of dead farm fishes washed up at Lim Chu Kang today. Lots also washed up at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.
At Lim Chu Kang, I saw Veolia workers working hard to remove the large number of fishes.


What is AVA doing about dead farm fishes being dumped into the water?

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.


Dead fish checks: Lim Chu Kang and Sungei Buloh

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.
Sadly, I got word of some dead fishes found at West Coast Park.

Gan Da has been going regularly to the Marsh Garden for the last three months for his school project. This is the first time he has seen these dead fishes.
