Large quantities of dead fish on the sands of Calangute beach on Thursday took the shine of Goa’s most famous tourist spot, but this did not deter tourists from enjoying themselves, even as water sports operators and hawkers went about their daily business.
The dead sardines were apparently deposited at high tide on the beach on Thursday night. “They are scattered for more than a kilometre on Calangute beach,” a fishermen said. Water sports operators and local fishermen said the fishes may have been dumped by some fishing vessel at sea.
While the sight of dead sardines reated a nuisance on the beach, tourists, mostly domestic and a few foreigners appeared bent on having some fun on the beach. (TimesOfIndia)
Locals on the beach admitted that this does not happen often. Labourers started gathering the dead fish by midmorning, but stopped the work due to sultry conditions. They resumed the work in the evening and sources said the beach was clear of fish by sunset.
