A large number of fish have been found floating dead over the past 3 days on the Sanya River in the city.

The dead fish were found concentrated in the section between Sanya Bridge and Jiaoyu Lane, accompanied by a disgusting smell.

A reporter called the city about his concerns and workers were dispatched a short time later to clean up the fish from along the riverbank.

According to the local fish port supervision management authority, such occurrences, large numbers of dead fish found on the Sanya River, can occasionally happen after large rainstorms.

"It could be a result of lower oxygen levels in the river because of the heavy rain in recent days, said a fisherman working on the Sanya River.

Further investigations are still being conducted and local residents are hoping the city can uncover exactly what happened to the fish.
