HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana graciously released 390,000 fish into the Chao Phraya River at Bangkok’s Tha Wasukri Pier on Monday as part of a merit-making rite to mark her birthday.

The Princess released nine species – silver barb, red-tail tinfoil barb, red-cheek barb, Siamese mud carp, climbing perch, seven-stripped carp, featherback fish, sultan fish and giant catfish – all of which were provided by the Fisheries Department.
Earlier in the day, she released a pair of cattle and some red-whiskered bulbuls.
