Hundreds of dead fish are said to be littering the shore.

Time and again, there have been countless media reports about dead fish found in large numbers littered in the beach areas of Karachi.

“This seemingly strange occurrence of dead fish littered at beaches was not because of some environmental pollution-related issue,” WWF-Pakistan’s technical adviser on marine fisheries, Moazzam Khan said.

“These water species reach to the beach on a large scale due to an alteration in water flow in the post-monsoon period,” the WWF-Pakistan expert said.

“If it was caused by pollution, other types of marine life also likely to be seen littered among the fish.” “The fish having habitat at the edge of the sea move to the beach due to shortage of oxygen,” Moazzim Khan added.
