Mass die off of fish in the waters of Wilhelmshausen, Germany

Fish Kill Alert
Eel, perch, pike, roach eye – all dead. Martin Engelmann is shocked. The 77-year-old angler can not comprehend the mysterious fish death at the lock at Wilhelmshausen. “This is a disaster,” says the Kassel hobby fisherman, who has been fishing in the area for 40 years.
Who is responsible for death? Engelmann has a guess: the waterway and shipping office in Hann. Münden, which operates the sluice.
“It must have to do with the regulation of the state,” says the Kasseler, “like many other anglers, I also believe that the dams were drained too fast.”
“I’ve never seen anything like this before, I could really cry.”
This led to the fact that the fish from the area with normally calm waters could not swim in time and died miserably. “I’ve never seen anything like it, I could really cry,” says Engelmann.
