Today I had a quick look at the western shores of Pasir Ris. There were a few large dead fishes and many smaller ones. All appeared to be wild fishes. Also, dead cuttlefishes and horseshoe crabs. I didn't see any dead farm fishes. Sightings of dead fishes at Seletar Dam (Benjamin Li) and Sembawang (Tan Sijie) were also shared recently.

I received this photo of more fishes dying at an eastern fish farm today.
So I headed out in the afternoon to see if dead fishes were washing up at Pasir Ris Park beach.
There was a huge dead barracuda, and a few other large dead fishes. I didn't see many dead farm fishes. Dead wild fishes were also reported over the last two days at Sembawang and Changi. The risks of fish deaths are rising in the weeks ahead as there will be no good spring tide to flush the waters around Pasir Ris and Pulau Ubin until April.

I heard the water was not quite right at Pasir Ris. So I had a quick look there yesterday.

There are living reefs at Little Sisters Island, just minutes from mainland Singapore! I spent most of the trip looking at them through a wide angle lens.
