BACHOK, March 27 (Bernama) -- Fish has been on the dining table of coastal villagers in Bachok and Pasir Puteh daily since Thursday.

And they did not have to buy the fish, but just collect them at the beaches.

Wave after wave had brought ashore dead fish, possibly due to the rise in sea temperature brought on by the El Nino phenomenon.

Villager Abdul Rahim Che Seman, 50, said the villagers rushed to collect the fish, mainly 'gelama', which were still fresh.

"We believe the fish could not withstand the rise in sea temperature because of the El Nino phenomenon," he told reporters at the Melawi beach here.

He said some of the villagers, having collected more fish than their families can consume, sold the gelama fish for RM10 per kg, below the market price of RM15.
