The authorities cautioned the nearby residents to avoid consuming the deceased fish, as it might be harmful health.

In March, complaints from local residents emerged over an unpleasant odor lingering in the sea before the first massive fish death.

Marine authorities see two major position changes
The position of Marine and Water Bureau vice president has been awarded to Chou Chi Tak amid an ongoing investigation carried out by the Commission Against Corruption, which has focused on two staff members at the managerial level of the bureau. It was believed that one of the individuals under investigation was the former vice head. As early as April this year, Chou, who previously managed a department, already assumed the acting position. Additionally, Chan I Un rose to the head of the Maritime Museum. Both appointments were made by the Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Raimundo Rosario.
