Tens of thousands of dead fish found in the Nechi River, Colombia
We have a sad history of the animal world. There are tens of thousands of fish killed by the lack of oxygen in the Nechí River, as a result of illegal mining waste in the area.
These new images would be further proof of the damage caused by the chemicals used in illegal gold mining in the area . The fact was denounced last year and as a result two mining operations closed . But these activities continued to be done affecting native species such as bocachico , catfish toads , blanquillos and gilded .
The inhabitants of the area who captured the fish mortality expect that the Regional Autonomous Corporation of the Center of Antioquia , investigate this environmental emergency that has its fishing activity in check.
