Hundreds of dead fish wash ashore along the waters in Montelimar, France
Hundreds of dead fish have been found since Wednesday on the banks of Roubion in Montelimar. A disaster for the Drôme Fishing Federation which had invested specifically in the repopulation of this river. An unknown sources of pollution.
Eight years of dashed resettlement policy … Fishermen in Drôme who had their habits on the banks of Roubion well have had to face the facts. Several hundred pounds of fish died following a pollution whose origin has not yet formally established. Fisheries Federation is devastated and she will file a complaint: She had invested heavily in recent years by reintroducing the noble fish, perch, carp and pike in this stretch of water.
The prefect of the Drome asked the National Rhone Company to conduct a drop of water to reduce pollution of the river. But fishing is obviously forbidden for now.
