Hundreds of dead fish wash up in a river in Nova Scotia, Canada #Fish #NovaScotia #Canada

Fish Kill Alert

This is the second fish kill in Nova Scotia in a month

Dead striped bass, gaspereau and even an Atlantic salmon were found over a two-kilometre stretch of the Shubenacadie River in central Nova Scotia on Monday.

Alanna Syilboy, with the Mi’kmaw Conservation Group, walked the river and said hundreds of fish died.

“You know, I grew up near that river my entire life and I’ve never heard or seen anything like this happen,” she said.

Syliboy said there was no obvious cause of death, but doesn’t think anyone is to blame.

“I believe that our rise in air temperature and low water levels at the tide being out is not creating an ideal habitat for any species of fish,” she said.
