Hot Ocean Temps Killing Fiji Fish
I had reports of this dead fish from all the way down next to Mango Bay resort, down by Namatakula all the way down to Malevu and im sure it went to the other side of Sigatoka as well.
According to Bonito, the fish kills began on Sunday and he estimates it will continue today because it is only a part of the larger problem of coral bleaching.

Oysters that were exposed to microplastics produced fewer and smaller egg cells and slower sperm. Exposed oysters also produced fewer larvae and their offspring tended to grow more slowly.
