Hundreds of dead #fish wash up, ‘never seen this many before’ in #SegersjonLake, #Sweden

Fish Kill Alert

Several Tumbabor have heard of both Mitt i and Botkyrka municipality after having seen lots of dead fish in the lake Segersjön in Tumba. One of them is Uttranbon Henrik Sjöberg.

I went with my dog ​​around Segersjön. To my horror, I saw hundreds of dead fishes along the shore, he says.

According to the environmental unit at Botkyrka municipality, the fish death is due to lack of oxygen in the water. The oxygen deficiency in itself is due to a combination of causes.

The ice has lain like a lid on the lake. Then we have had the hot summer and a low water level in combination with a lot of biological material and plants, says Ylva Wolgast who is a communicator at Botkyrka municipality.

According to the environmental unit, there is a risk that all fish in the lake will die.

But if that happens, it will swim in new fish from Uttran.
