Large number of dead fish found in Sanya River
The dead fish were found concentrated in the Hedong Road section between Sanya Bridge and Jiaoyu Lane, accompanied by a disgusting smell.
One local reporter called the city about his concerns. On Wednesday, workers were dispatched to clean up the fish, weighing about 100kg in total, from along the riverbank.
According to the local fish port supervision management authority, such occurrences of large numbers of dead fish found on the Sanya River can occasionally happen due to the rising tide which washes up dead fish.
Further investigations are still being conducted and local residents are hoping the city can uncover exactly what happened to the fish.
