A Dugong (Dugong dugon) carcass was found floating in the sea near Kampung Pendas Laut, Johor.

Several fishermen spotted the carcass near a mega development project while they were out at sea at about 9am on Thursday.

Johor Fisheries Department director Zamani Omar said a team of officers is at the scene to investigate.

“I have yet to receive a report from my officers,” he said.

“I have also instructed them to determine the cause of death,” he said, adding that the department will investigate whether the Dugong died from disease or was hit by a vessel.
