Daily Decay (17th March 2018): Snubnose Pompano (Trachinotus blochii) @ Changi

This was one of the many casualties of a fish mass death in February 2014, caused by a harmful algal bloom in the eastern Straits of Johor.

Many of the offshore fish farms in the Straits of Johor raise Snubnose Pompano for human consumption, so this carcass could have come from one of the farmed fishes, instead of being of wild origin.
