Mass Marine Mortality at Pasir Ris
By Sean Yap, 28th February 2015;
For the past few years around this time of the year there have been occurrences of mass fish deaths on our northern shores. This year is no exception. Ria was here earlier as well, and has done a comprehensive blog post about the situation. I’m just posting photos of cool dead things. I know I don’t sound sad but I am, kay 😦
So Chinse New Year is over, and the food guilt finally set in so I decided to try and run to work some of the sin off. As soon as I hit the path however, my nose was immediately assaulted by a foul stench. I had seen some of my friends posting about fish deaths on Facebook, so I decided to go see for myself what the situation was like (totally not an excuse).
The first stop was a breakwater, and LO AND BEHOLD, I was greeted with a friggin mass grave.
Dead fish update: Pasir Ris, Seletar Dam, Sembawang

Today I had a quick look at the western shores of Pasir Ris. There were a few large dead fishes and many smaller ones. All appeared to be wild fishes. Also, dead cuttlefishes and horseshoe crabs. I didn’t see any dead farm fishes. Sightings of dead fishes at Seletar Dam (Benjamin Li) and Sembawang (Tan Sijie) were also shared recently.
Timothy Hromatka, a fish farmer off Ubin also shared more about the recent fish deaths on the farms.
