Thousands of dead tilapia end up in Malacca River

MALACCA: The sudden appearance of thousands of dead tilapia floating on the surface of the Malacca River near Taman Rumpun Bahagia in Bachang has left even the state Environment Department puzzled.

Malacca Environment Department director Shafe'ee Yasin however, confirmed that the river was not threatened by industrial pollutants.

"Initial investigations by DOE revealed that the river was not contaminated by industrial effluents as there were no factories nearby," he said.

"We have collected samples of the river water, but we have yet to finalise its results," he said when contacted by New Straits Times here today.
