Pattaya 20th January 2010 [Pattaya Daily News] At approximately 6.30pm, on 19th January a Pattaya reporter noted from the local villagers of old Naklua market, that Sucker fish were floating dead in the thousands in the Naklua canal in the direction of the sea. Police were called to the scene to investigate.

When the officer arrived, he discovered a crowd of worried local villagers looking at the scene in the canal. Mr. Thongchai Jaikhan,[35], a villager who lived beside the canal revealed that he regularly came to catch fish, sometimes netting live Sucker fish. When he arrived today, he discovered thousands of fish floating on top and being carried by the current out to sea. The villages expressed their worry, stating that perhaps Pattaya City may have poisoned the fish in a bid to make the villagers suffer.

 

Mr Weerawat Khakhai, (Deputy Mayor) told reporters that the sanitary officials had been sent to inspect the incident and the result was that this morning, the water level was very low which resulted in the canal drying up leaving large puddles at different points on the river bed, which left the fish stranded. Later in the afternoon, when the tide came in, the water level rose very quickly causing the rush of water to render the fish unconscious. Having being in shallow water for so long, the fish were weak causing them to die.

However, the officials collected the fish for samples to examine and as soon as is possible, will divulge the results. Mr. Khakhai denied whispers that Pattaya were not concerned about the incident and that they had no reasons to kill the fish.
