Thousands of dead #fish appear on a beach in #Escuintla, #Guatemala

Fish Kill Alert

Staff of the National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction (Conred) came to verify the death of thousands of fish of various species, which appeared this Saturday on the shore of Tecojate Beach and the Zanjón Salado River in Nueva Concepción, Escuintla.

According to local media, the neighbors blame the death of these animals on several shrimp companies that operate in the sector and expel their waste to the rivers, as well as the drains that flow into the beach, producing high levels of pollution.
