Thousands of dead #fish wash ashore near #Sathanur reservoir, #India
It came as a huge surprise to visitors on the downstream end of Sathanur reservoir to see thousands of fish washed ashore on Friday morning.
Dead fish were washed ashore for a stretch of about 400 metres. Alerted by the locals, officials of the Public Works Department and Department of Fisheries here visited the spot and collected the dead fish.
Sources said the dead fish would be sent to Fisheries College and Research Institute to ascertain the exact reason for their mysterious death. Fishermen and the villagers allege that the miscreants may have used some toxic substances which caused the death of the fish.
