Thousands of dead fish wash up in the fjords of More and Romsdal, Norway
Several thousand dead small fish was Sunday washed up on shore by Bøbrua in Bøfjorden. Residents in the area feared that it was due to pollution, but in all probability it is a natural cause of fish death. It believes in any case daze Otte Bjelland at IMR in Bergen.
It is the second time in less than a month that it is ascertained such mass deaths in fjords in Møre and Romsdal.
The first time was on April 20 when fishing Yngve Steen according Romsdals Budstikke found a kilometer long belt of dead small fish by backpack.
Also at that time could Bjelland affirm that it revolved around salmon herring. It is here talking about fully grown fish, not fry, the modest considering its size.
It is interesting that this happens twice in a short time, within relatively modest distances, says Bjelland, who believes that a possible cause of fish death is that the population in the fjords Nordvestlandet has become too great.
