    TAIPING: About 10 caged-fish breeders in Sungai Sangga Besar and Kuala Sepetang near here have claimed losses of more than RM1 million due to the current hot and dry weather brought on by the El Nino phenomenon.
    The breeders' representative, who only wanted to be known as Lee, said about 200,000 'tilapia', grouper and sea bass had died on Sunday.
    "When we went to our farms that day, we found dead fish floating in the ponds," he told Bernama.
    Apart from the hot weather, Lee said, lack of oxygen could have also killed the fish. — Bernama
