2,000 dead fish found washed up on a beach in Praia do forte, Brazil
About 2 000 dead fish were found in the sands of Praia do Forte in the Lakes Region of Rio, on Monday (25). The State Environmental Institute (INEA) was in place during the afternoon and found that it is probably disposal made by fishing boats. According to INEA, fish discarded are the Perua and pufferfish species that have low commercial value. Also according to the institute, the discard hypothesis was confirmed by swimmers and locals, who saw commercial fishing boats at dawn. Removal of fish shall be made by the municipal collection service. The G1 contacted the Cabo Frio City Hall but has not received information about the collection.
