A massive haul of dead fish were seen floating on the surface of the Songbai Lake of Xiamen, Fujian province.
According to local residents, recently water in the lake turned black and the water level has dropped dramatically to about one third of its normal level.
The stench of dead fish was overpowering and visitors to the lake have been forced to cover their faces.
Now would be a good time for that recently proposed law on polluters to be implemented as expediently as possible.
