Hundreds of dead fish were found at the Suva foreshore on Thursday.

When the Fiji Sun team visited the foreshore, stench filled the area.

The Permanent Secretary for Fisheries and Forests Inoke Wainiqolo said investigations were underway to determine the cause of death of the fish.

“We have sent the sample of the dead fish to the University of the South Pacific,” Mr Wainiqolo said.

“I cannot comment  on what caused the death of these small fish because there are no feedbacks yet from USP. There were few kinds of fish found.”
