Massive fish deaths found washed up on the shores of Los Santos, Panama

Lots of fish on the Pacific coast of Azuero, died stranded along the Beach El Toro, Pedasí district, in the province of Los Santos.
 
Fishermen in the region reported that they observed on the coast sharks, adult and young, who came to the shore behind the school to feed themselves.
 
The Ministry of the environment received a complaint about this unusual mortality of fish sighted in El Toro, Pedasi, beach and “was attended by technicians of the institution, who proceeded to identify the species of fish found, as well as taking samples of water and dead specimens,” details a statement of the entity.
 
According to the technical staff, “the cause most likely this event is mainly the suffocation of fish due to lack of oxygen”.
 
Environment authorities recommend that those fish are not ingested by people and identified the species of anchoveta (Cetengraulis SP.), as Cetengraulis mysticetus or bocona anchovy, by their common name.

Severe drought forces authorities to bar the biggest ships into the canal in Panama

Panama will temporarily limit the size of ships using the waterway because drought has lowered water levels in Gatun and Alhajuela lakes.
 
The Panama Canal Authority said Friday the restrictions take effect Sept. 8 but only a minority of ships now using the canal will be kept out. The restrictions have been expected by shippers.
 
Rainfall over the watershed feeding the lakes at the midsection of the waterway has fallen sharply as a result of the El Nino weather phenomenon. Similar problems occurred in 1997-98.
 
The authority said a ship’s maximum allowable draft will be 39 feet (11.89 meters) at first, but might be further reduced to 38.5 feet (11.73 meters) on Sept. 16. About five or six of the 36 ships now using the canal daily will be affected.
