Thousands of dead #fish found floating in a river in #Wolgast, #Germany

Fish Kill Alert

In the city harbor in Wolgast, an approximately three-meter-wide and 50-meter long carpet of thousands of dead white fish has formed. This was reported by the water police in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

The fish had therefore partly torn heads or torn out swim bladders. According to the police, this indicates mechanical effects.

The cause of the fish extinction is, according to the police, but still unclear. A hypothesis was that the incident related to a nearby shipyard, said a police spokesman. Officials have taken fish and water samples and have now determined. The disposal of the carcasses was initiated by the authorities.
