Politicians Call for Action on Mass Fish Deaths in Australia’s New South Wales

Politicians are calling for the urgent removal of the millions of dead fish that are clogging the waterways of the lower Darling-Baaka River near Menindee, in the far west of New South Wales (NSW).
The NSW Department of Planning and Environment said in a statement on Saturday it will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep the community informed.
The Department said the die-off of the fish, mostly bony herring, was caused by recent floods and hot weather leading to extremely low dissolved oxygen levels being recorded in the river earlier this week.
The statement added this weekend’s extreme temperatures worsened the deaths, and will likely lead to further fish die-offs in coming days….
