A large number of fish have been found floating dead recently on the Sanya River in the city.

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.



"It could be a result of lower oxygen levels in the river as temperature rises,” said the local port supervision management authority.

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