More Fish Washed Up
Thousands of fish were washed up on Kedungu Beach in Tabanan this week, possibly because of the rapid grown of toxic â€œred tideâ€ organisms in the surrounding seas.
Local residents reported seeing thousands of fish on the beach on Monday and Tuesday, community chief Ketut Setiasa said.
The find mirrors a similar occurrence in Badung regency last month. The cyclical El Nino weather phenomenon is blamed for causing the red tide.Filed under: The Island
