Lots of dead farm fishes washed up at Lim Chu Kang today. Lots also washed up at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.
When I arrived, I noticed three Veolia trucks parked near the jetty, and lots of yellow trash bags on the high water mark.
Have these dead fishes reached Sungei Buloh too?
Sadly, yes. At Sungei Buloh, the boom had been deployed to stop the dead fishes from floating deeper into the Reserve. It is heartbreaking to see that NParks has to work extra hard to protect our Reserves simply because fish farms do not dispose of dead fishes responsibly.
the one that I saw on Friday.
Wouldn't it be better for the environment, and save manpower and cleanup costs, if our coastal fish farms were provided a way to responsibly dispose of their trash?
Once again, I would like to highlight that the authorities should work together to provide all fish farmers a practical and reasonable way to accommodate their trash needs. Today, every business and household on the mainland and every ship parked in port is provided with daily door-to-door trash collection. But all coastal fish farms licenced by AVA are NOT provided with a similar service.
Dead Fish Alert!
Please help me monitor dead fishes washing up on the Johor Straits. Please let me know if you see large numbers (more than 10) especially of large dead fishes (more than 20cm long) washing up on the northern shores such as Pulau Ubin, Lim Chu Kang, Sungei Buloh, Kranji, Sembawang, Punggol, Pasir Ris, Changi.
