The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has dismissed a report that dead fish sighted at the Mu Ko Surin (Surin Islands) were killed by illegal fishing involving explosives.
Department chief Thanya Nethithammakul said authorities had confirmed there was no explosion or evidence of one at Richelieu Rock, which is one of the top diving sites in the country.
"We have found no trace of an explosion there," he said.
