Hundreds of dead #fish found in #MellaRiver in #Italy

Fish Kill Alert

The Mella river and the precariousness of its ecosystem return to be talked about. This is demonstrated by a video sent by one of our readers, shot between the center of Castel Mella and the hamlet of Onzato, where a mortality of fish (hundreds of dead specimens) was recorded on Friday.

The mortality could have been caused by high temperatures, combined with the very low level of water in the area. However, other reasons are not excluded, from an illegal spill to the toxins released by an alga. To shed light on what has happened it will be necessary to wait for the results of the analysis of the Ats, the Brescia Health Protection Agency.
