Smelly task: Workers clearing shoals of dead fish found along the river at Bishan- Ang Mo Kio Park. -The Straits Times / Asia News Network
Hundreds of dead fish have been found floating in the river at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, causing a lingering stench in the area.
When reporters visited the park in the morning yesterday, at least 300 white-coloured fish were seen floating on a 200m stretch of the river close to Bishan Road.
Many were decomposing under the hot sun.
Cleaners were seen wading through the river gathering the fish.
Residents said that they spotted the dead fish at about noon on Tuesday.
Many long-time residents said this was the first time they had ever witnessed mass fish deaths in Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.
The picturesque river is part of the Kallang River, with the latter running from Lower Peirce Reservoir down south to Kallang Basin.
It opened in March 2012 after having been converted from what was previously a concrete canal, under a PUB programme to turn drains, canals and reservoirs into streams and lakes. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
