According to Haikou City Board of Marine and Fisheries, the large number of dead fish is due to a change in salinity.

Its suspected that the fish have floated in from another place.

40 sanitation workers have attended the scene to recover the deceased animals.

The fish are thought to be scaled sardines, herring like fish that can be found in the Pacific Ocean. Scaled Sardines can grow up to nine inches in length but are usually around half of that size.

Staff at the Marine and Fisheries Agency told local reporters that pollution can be ruled out as a cause of death.
