Beronok fear

 
Sea cucumbers on Penang beach raise fear
11 Dec 2006(NST)

BALIK PULAU: Memories of the tsunami disaster returned to haunt residents of Pantai Pasir Panjang following the appearance of thousands of the jelly-like sea cucumbers on the beach here.

The bronog, the size of a thumb, found their way onto the kilometre-long shore after midnight yesterday.

While holiday-makers took no notice of the rare phenomenon, residents here believe that the appearance of the sea cucumbers could be a sign of an impending disaster.

Several days before the Dec 26 tsunami in 2004, thousands of fish were washed ashore on the same beach.

Most of the more than 50 deaths during the tsunami were reported at Pantai Pasir Panjang.

Abu Bakri Abu Bakar, 33, a security personnel at the Kem Bina Negara here, said this was the first such incident on the beach.

He said the beach looked white but there was a change in colour that made him go there to check.

"I found thousands of sea cucumbers washed ashore. I have a funny feeling that this is a bad omen.

"I just hope my instincts are wrong this time," he added.

About a month ago, thousands of sea cucumbers, known locally as gamat, also appeared on the Batu Buruk tourist beach in Kuala Terengganu.

Officials there claimed that it was a new phenomenon for sea cucumbers to surface near the shore.

Malaysians value sea cucumbers for their medicinal benefits and also as culinary delicacies. Malays have traditionally utilized certain species of Stichopus (locally known as "gamat") for their medicinal properties and traditional medicines processed from gamat are used in wound healing, treatment of stomach ulcers and as a painkiller. The Chinese have long regarded sea cucumbers as a general health tonic, beneficial for treating tendonitis and arthritis, and as an aphrodisiac, among many other medicinal claims. The Chinese also consider sea cucumbers as culinary delicacies

Most of the commercial species of sea cucumbers utilized for medicinal purposes or as food are found in coral reef regions. Some of the edible but non-commercial species of sea cucumbers, however, are found in the vicinity of coastal mangrove mudflats; one such example is Paracaudina sp., locally known as "beronok", which is often served as a salad and consumed by coastal communities
