Experts Speculate On Cause Of Massive Fish Deaths Off Kwun Tong

Thousands of dead fish were floating off the Kwun Tong Typhoon Shelter yesterday, stinking to high heaven and startling passers-by and nearby residents. The unsightly scene recalls the thousands of dead fish drifting in waters between Peng Chau and Discovery Bay in April. In the current case, the Marine Department said it received a report at about 7am and sent three vessels to the area. “About 2,000kg of dead fish have been taken away so far. The cleaning work is still ongoing,” a department spokesman said in the afternoon. He said no oil spillage could be detected, but did not explain the cause of the phenomenon.
