Thousands of dead fish found floating in Piauí stream in Piaui, Brazil

Fish Kill Alert
Thousands of fish were found dead in the Curimatá Creek, which is one of the tributaries that flows into the Algodões II Dam, located between the municipalities of Júlio Borges and Curimatá, in the southern region of Piauí.
 
The environmental activist, the pedagogue Ronaldo Luz, defines the situation as an “environmental disaster” and explained that the death occurred during the piracema, which is the period of reproduction of the fish. 
 
“There was a lot of rain in the region, there was water in the creek, but it was very fast evasion; the fish rose because of the period of the piracema, to the spawning, and could not return to the dam. Every year we have this period, but the competent authorities do not take initiative to avoid this situation, “said the activist.
