Daily Decay (30th December 2017): Streaked Rabbitfish (Siganus javus) @ Pulau Sekudu

This was one of several dead fishes removed from an illegal ‘bubu’ fish trap at Pulau Sekudu. Fishing is not allowed in the area, and fish traps are often placed in locations so shallow that the fishes inside are at great risk of getting stranded and dying when the tide falls. In many instances, the fact that some of the fishes inside are little more than dessicated carcasses or even just skeletons indicates that a fish trap has been left out for some time.
