Panaji: Shoals of dead fish wash ashore at Miramar

Daijiworld Media Network – Panaji (MS)

Panaji, Oct 16: Visitors of the tourist state were mystified as they saw shoals of dead fish washed ashore at Miramar beach.

According to Joe D’Souza, retired scientist and social activist this phenomenon occurred due to the food chain getting affected from internal or external pollution.

D’Souza says that inland vessels like casinos and trawlers leave their sewage into the river that causes the oxygen meant for the fish eaten up by the bacteria and the fish dies because of the same. The grills of fish are clogged due to suffocation.

Mainly small fishes like Vellio, Burante etc washed ashore at Miramar beach.
