Several thousand fish have died in the river Peene in Germany

Fish Kill Alert

In finding the cause of a mass extinction of fish in the Peene at Anklam, investigators have a first track. On Monday evening, a sewer pipe was discovered, from which flowed a strong smelling in ethanol liquid. The pipe had been turned off and samples taken, a spokesman said the water police Wolgast on Tuesday. It will determine suspicion of pollution against unknown.
 
The samples went to a laboratory. Must be clarified whether the introduction of this liquid is the cause of the fish kills or may yet year-zeitbedingter lack of oxygen has led to the death of thousands of fish. Dead fish were found upstream – and down the point of discharge, as the spokesman further said. The county on Monday spoke of a “massive scale” fish kills. Thousands fish floated dead on the Peene River or agonized dying for air, including meter long Pike, strong walleye, perch and other species.
