An investigation is being carried out to ascertain the cause of a fish kill in Portmore, St. Catherine.

The National Environment and Planning Agency was informed of the fish kill Thursday morning.

“We are still in the preliminary stages of the investigation. We did extensive work on the ground; however, in terms of what is the cause or what could be the possible cause, I’m not at a point of saying that as yet as I’m still waiting for further information from the investigating team,” Richard Nelson, Senior Manager for the Environmental Management Division at the National Environment and Planning Agency, told RJR News.
