TONS of fish die in fish farms in Thang Binh District, Vietnam
The dead fish were of the farms run by three local growers, who were allowed by local authorities to rent Phuoc Ha Lake to raise fish for five years since February 2016.
The three collectively raised some 130,000 fish of various kinds such as silver carp, grass carp, major carp, and tilapia.
However, ten metric tons of those fish, mostly silver carp and tilapia at the farm of Nguyen Van Duyen, died, costing him VND500 million (US$ 22,500) of losses.
Local officials have asked responsible agencies to test the dead fish and water to find out the cause. The result is yet to be released.
In the meantime, local residents are giving their hands to remove the dead fishes to help keep the environment clean.
