Thousands of fish die in a canal in Wambrechies, France

Since Friday, hundreds of fish come out of the canal to search for oxygen, explains Alain Sion, captain of the marina. There, between the boats, there were many, one could have walked on the water! “With the help of yachtsmen, the captain set off pumps, to oxygenate the water. “Because of strikes and unemployment at the locks of Lille, Quesnoy and Comines, there have been far fewer passages of barges,” he said. If one adds the strong heat, one gets a piscicole hecatomb.
Thousands of fish could be saved, but 3 to 4,000 of them died and were taken out of the canal by Alain Sion. A gesture he still had to make this Sunday, which explains the pestilential smoke that emanated from some garbage. With the lower temperatures, we can hope that things will be better.
