According to locals, this is not the first time. Back in 2009, a storm liberated poisonous sulphur and fish-feeding sediments from the lake bottom, which resulted in around 7,000 tons of dead fish.

  1. I remember a big fishkill in lake Laninjau in the year 1997. But there were not as many karamba’s (net cages) in the lake as today !
    It may well be a hundred times worse now !
