2,000 fish die in Geylang Bahru drain

SINGAPORE - About 2,000 dead fish were found floating in a large drain near Block 59A, Geylang Bahru early on Wednesday morning.

Witnesses spotted various types of fish floating at around 7am, reported Shin Min Daily News.

Mr Lee, 40, who has been fishing in the area for three years, said the fish could have swum into the drain from a nearby river because of oxygen shortage in the water.

A school bus driver who gave his name only as Mr Tan, 53, said waters in the big drains in the nearby Kallang Bahru area had turned green recently. Others residents feared that if the water is polluted, it may affect the area's biodiversity
