Further Fish Deaths in Fujairah

Further to the earlier posting, a large team of workers from the Fujairah Municipality was doing overtime early this evening, clearing up dead fish from the Fujairah beaches.

With rakes and shovels and amid the intensifying stench, they put heaps of fish into bags.

In one private beach the sand appeared as a large, white carpet of small fish.

Along other beaches today many larger fish have also been found dead.
