The post's Indonesian-language caption translates to English as: "Why did these fish in Bali died on the seashore? @BNPB_Indonesia."
A yellow-coloured subtitle imposed on the clip reads: "these fish happened at a Bali beach."
"BNPB_Indonesia" is the official Twitter account of the Indonesian Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB).
Bali is a province and a resort island in Indonesia.

Below is a screenshot of an Anapromex license plate found on its website:
