Thousands of dead fish seen in Pasir Ris

Thousands of small dead fish were found today along Sungei Api Api, which flows along an HDB estate and Pasir Ris Park.

Thousands more were also found along the banks of Pasir Ris Beach, reported The Straits Times.

National water agency PUB said the marine fish seems to have been washed in at the tide. According to the paper, it found out about the incident this morning.

Workers have already started cleaning up, and were seen scooping up the dead fish into black plastic bags for disposal.

The incident has no impact on Singapore's drinking water, said a PUB spokesman, as the river is not part of Singapore's drinking water supply.

The cause of the incident is being investigated by the NEA.
