Thailand's flood waters threaten marine life

Many fish dying or swimming away in the Gulf of Thailand, affecting thousands of shellfish farmers.

    Marine life is suffering in the Gulf of Thailand, where the Chao Phraya River, which runs through the capital Bangkok, meets the sea.

    Following the worst flooding in the country in decades, millions of cubic metres of extra water has been draining into the gulf causing shellfish and other fish to die or swim away.

    At least 10,000 shellfish farmers have been affected and conservationists say it will be months before they can resume their trade.
