Daily Decay (20th June 2018): Unidentified Grouper (Epinephelus
sp.) @ Changi
This was one of the many casualties of a fish mass death in late February and March 2015, caused by a harmful algal bloom in the eastern Straits of Johor.
Several species of Grouper (as well as hybrids) are raised in offshore fish farms in the Straits of Johor, so this individual might have been a farm escapee.
Daily Decay (12th June 2018): White Tamban (Sardinella albella) @ Changi
This was one of the many casualties of a fish mass mortality event that took place in the eastern Straits of Johor in February 2014, supposedly caused by a plankton bloom.
Daily Decay (3rd June 2018): Croaking Gourami (Trichopsis vittata
) @ Kranji Marshes
Daily Decay (27th May 2018): Unidentified Snapper (Lutjanus sp.) @ 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 several species of Snapper, such as John’s Snapper (Lutjanus johnii) and Crimson Snapper (Lutjanus erythropterus), for human consumption, so this carcass is likely to be one of the farmed fishes, instead of being of wild origin.
