QUẢNG NAM — Thousands of fish, shrimp and crabs raised in ponds near the Trường Giang River, in the section running through Tam Hiệp Commune in the central province of Quảng Nam, have died over the past few days, causing concern for aquacultural households in Núi Thành District.
The cause of the fish death is unknown, according to local farmers.
Nguyễn Văn Xá, a farmer in Vĩnh Đại Village, said he found the mass of dead fish floating in the pond starting last Friday. The number of dead fish has increased day by day.
This incident has never happened before, he said.
On Monday, fish deaths also occurred in many other breeding households in the village, Dân Trí online newspaper reported.
Authorised agencies of Tam Hiệp Commune and the natural resources and environmental office of Núi Thành District have collected water samples to investigate the cause of the fish death. — VNS
