Beccari's seagrass (Halophila beccarii)!
On Saturday, Andy saw lots of fishes that looked like mullets or milkfish from fishfarms in the Johor Strait. He said "These pics are from the Mangrove Boardwalk area. Apparently, the dead fish started appearing on Friday and SBWR staff had cleared what they could reach but there was just too many dead fish coming in from the coast with each incoming tide."

Limau Lelang (Merope angulata) and it seems to be doing fine with some flowers.
Kalak kambing (Finlaysonia obovata) draped in the mangroves. I didn't see any flowers or fruits.
Tumu (Bruguiera gymnorrhiza) trees were blooming and producing propagules!
all along the Northern shoreline including Sungei Buloh.
Beccari's seagrass (Halophila beccarii) that is usually so thick especially among the seedlings. Hopefully, they are just 'resting' during this hot season?

It is disturbing to hear about all the dead fishes at Sungei Buloh and Lim Chu Kang. I agree with Andy that if these fishes were dumped by fish farms something should be done to stop them from doing so. Such short-sighted practices not only degrades the water quality for the natural environment, but also the water that the fish farms rely on for their fish sold as food to Singaporeans!
