SINGAPORE: Singapore's national water agency PUB is appealing for information on two boys who were filmed fishing illegally at Merlion Park in the Marina Bay area.
In a short video posted on the SBS - Sure Boh Singapore Facebook page on Thursday (Sep 6), two boys who look to be in their teens are seen reeling in what appeared to be a huge peacock bass.

The agency later said on its own Facebook page that it is investigating the incident.
