Lake Covered with Dead Fish in Russia

Local environmentalists have reported about a mass death of fish in the lake – carp and perch. According to their estimates, the density of killed fish is about a meter in depth. According to one version, the lessee of the lake could deliberately starve the fish with chemicals to produce the fish stocking of more expensive species, such as peled. In the administration of Kunashaksky municipal district believe that the state of emergency could occur for weather conditions: in winter the lake was frozen almost to the bottom, at 1.8 m, and the fish suffocated. At the same time, shallowing was caused by violations committed during the repair of the road.
