National Environment and Planning Agency’s NEPA’s investigation has confirmed that the recent fish kill in Harbour View, Kingston, was a result of excessive algae in the waters, causing a depletion of oxygen. Concerns are mounting among locals about how this might affect their livelihoods, especially so close to the Christmas holiday. Ramon Gordon provides an account of what was meant to be a leisurely day turning unpleasant after a distressing discovery last Saturday. This incident mirrors a similar event in early November when numerous dead fish appeared along the shores of Harbour Head in Kingston, near the Harbour View roundabout. Speaking anonymously, one resident highlighted the unbearable stench accompanying the December 9 fish kill, reflecting the discomfort felt by the community.
