The Johor Fisheries Department Zamani Omar said that the situation can be worse if domestic wastewater is also ejected into waterways of surrounding areas.

“In the long run, more efficient irrigation routes should be constructed to facilitate the flow of water in and out according to the tide.”

We urge local authorities to begin taking action and ensure that such an incident do not repeat itself in the future.
