    Wat Umong Fish Pond Evacuated as Fish Begin to Die



    Officials hired eight trucks to transport a large number of fish from Wat Umong, after the pond water levels became dangerously low because of the current drought.

    On May 15, the Chief of Chiang Mai, Saranyu Meetongkam, and a team of people have helped move the fish from the drying up pond to a 30 metre deep pond in Sanpatong.

    Eight trucks were hired to help transport the fish.

    Due to the drought, the pond in the temple has almost completely dried up, leaving very little water for the large fish to live in, which has become dangerously deoxygenated.

    The new location for the fish is a temporary solution, but officials worry that as the pond is so deep, it will be hard to catch the fish and return them to the temple when the water is replenished.

    Students help move hundreds of fish from a drying pond to a larger pond



    All the fish in a drying pond at Wat U Mong in Chiang Mai have been moved to safety to a larger pond in Sanpatong district thanks to the help of a large group of fisheries faculty students of Mae Jo University.

    The fish at Wat U Mong was at risk of dying because water in the pond has steadily receded due to the hot weather and has become polluted.

    The students waded through the muddy pond and caught the fish with hands and simple tools and put them into containers before trucking them to Nong Sra Riam pond in Sanpatong district.
