Residents in Isla are reportedly smelling something fishy after two separate tuna carcasses appeared in the waters around the Città Invicta in the last few days.
The two tuna carcasses were spotted in two different zones of Isla, one appearing near the tunnel that leads to the Isla foreshore, and the other nearer the Regatta Club, TVM reported.
The two tuna carcasses were in various stages of decomposition, with other fish seen to be feasting on the leftovers.
This is not the first time tuna carcasses randomly appeared on the Maltese shores, with several tuna washing up last year, leading to one pair of Maltese men tying one tuna to a jetski, while another pair of men were filmed struggling to lift their massive find onto the shore.
A grown tuna can land its seller several thousands of euros on the international market, if not tens or even hundreds of thousands if the conditions are right.
A number of Maltese fish farm owners have denied having anything to do with these two latest incidents, saying instead that they sense something illegal may be behind these randomly-appearing dead tuna.
