The dead fish were found between recreational area the Psw, the auction route, and the Zwethlaan. The goldfish herpesvirus is deadly to goudvisachtigen, but for freshwater fish, other warm-blooded animals or people, it is not harmful. 
More than 1,500 kilograms of dead fish has been taken out of the water. The next few days the delfland water Board keeps the situation in the holes. Dead fish are removed as soon as possible.
