Photo taken on Sept. 3, 2011 shows a aquaculture base at Shuikou Township section of the Minjiang River in Gutian County in southeast China's Fujian Province. A large amount of cultivated fishes were found dead with unkown reasons in recent days in the Minjiang River's Shuikou Township section, which is the largest aquaculture base in Fujian. The floating dead fishes, decaying in hot weather, have been polluting the river, the main drinking water resource of the province. The cause is still under investigation. (Xinhua/Wei Peiquan)

This should be the tasks of Chinese scientists and research academics to quickly find the real cause(s) of those killed fishes! It is somehow a real security concern to China as many accidents and incidences of poisoning and explosions had happened within months in 2011.
