Senoko Fishery Port: Fish overdose

Well before dawn, I visited the Senoko Fishery Port for the first time. And got an overdose of fish!
This is where some of our fishes arrive and are distributed to our supermarkets and markets.

What the fish? Figuring out dead fishes at Sungei Buloh

We checked on the dead fish situation early this morning. With a quick stop at the makeshift jetty at the end of Lim Chu Kang that is used by Western fish farms.
We also pondered about the dead fishes: what kind of fish are they? Do Singapore fish farms raise these fishes? A few of us employed The Google and came up with some answers and lots more questions.

Sentosa is alive

My first seashore trip after I broke my foot about 7 months ago! I managed to briefly explore the beautiful natural shore of Sentosa, which is so full of life.
There are seagrasses, corals, rare trees and all kinds of marine creatures on this shore just opposite the container terminals on the horizon.

Still lots of dead fishes at Sungei Buloh

I saw lots of dead fishes floating in with the incoming high tide at the Main Bridge at Sungei Buloh.
The fishes looked less 'freshly dead' and were probably the same ones I saw yesterday. Besides the many farm fishes, I saw one dead catfish and one dead Scat. It was raining and I couldn't see any of the usual wild fishes. There were even some dead farm fishes at the Mangrove Boardwalk.

Thousands of farm fishes rot at Sungei Buloh

Thousands of dead farm fishes are floating into Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, raising a stink and many questions.
Another mass fish death at the Singapore's Western fish farms? Why are the farms not disposing of their dead fish properly? This has happened before in July 2013. What is the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) doing to prevent such mass littering incidents from occurring repeatedly? Why don't Singapore farms raise native fishes which are better adapted to our waters?
