April and May.
This morning, I saw about 40 dead fishes in my walk from the Main Bridge to Platform 1. Most of the fishes looked freshly (a few days) dead. Most of the dead fishes look like large market-size farmed grey mullets (30-35cm long).
Last week on 15 Jul, it was reported that thousands of fishes died at Malaysian fish farms off Danga Bay, which is across Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in the Johor Strait.
I have been to the headwaters of the Sungei Buloh Besar river in 2011, where it becomes a canal and have seen the water there turn opaque white like milk.

There are a lot of farms that lie upstream from Sungei Buloh river. Are they dumping into the river and causing these drastic water quality issues?
