Migrant workers find giant, freaky fish floating in Bedok Reservoir

A group of migrant workers found an oddly-shaped, massive fish floating in Bedok Reservoir on Saturday morning.

A witness, Rachel who was going on her morning jog around 8.20am that day, was shocked to see such a large fish being put into the bag. Curious, Rachel approached the men – one of whom was wearing an Singapore Power (SP) Group shirt – to find out what they were doing.

Rachel recounted: “I was jogging when I saw them placing something big in a plastic bag, so I approached them to ask since I was curious.

“The fish seemed to be about a metre long and had to weigh at least 16kg because I was told by the SP officer that at least two men were needed to carry it. The officer told me that the cleaners had discovered the fish that was floating in the water when they were patrolling the reservoir.”

Rachel added: It was my first time seeing such a big fish in this reservoir. It was seldom that I saw anyone catching anything, or even if they did, it was never as big.”
