KARACHI: A needle fish was found stuck in a plastic cup from Karachi’s coast, according to World Wide Fund for Nature- Pakistan spokesperson on Friday.

The fishermen tried to rescue to fish but to no avail as the fish soon died.

About 50 percent plastic is found in garbage which is dumped in sea near Clifton, according to WWF representative.

The polluted Arabian Sea has become a nuisance for not just humans but also marine life. One in three marine animals are killed across the world due to marine pollution, pointed out the spokesperson.

Needlefish generally swim near the coast and are known for their thin streamlined bodies and needle-like beaks. Generally, they have a lifespan of about eight years and some are capable for growing more than a metre in length.
