  • New Australia mass fish deaths in key river system

Up to a million fish died along the Darling River at Menindee earlier in January, while thousands were also found dead nearly 900km away along the Macintyre River.

Authorities said Monday that a key river basin in Eastern Australia again killed thousands of fish.

He said it is an "environmental catastrophe" and conditions could potentially deteriorate further.

Another Menindee resident, Prissy Stephens, came across a number of dead giant Murray Cod, one of which weighed 19 kilograms.

The state government has installed aerators in some waterways to keep the levels of oxygen up for fish, but Regional Water Minister Niall Blair said it was fresh water that was ultimately needed for them to survive.

The NSW Department of Primary Industries has sent officers to investigate the event, which it believes has affected "large numbers of bony bream and smaller numbers of other species".

"It is likely linked to some rain and cooler temperatures in the Menindee area following an extended period of very hot weather", a department spokesperson said.

"Under the current circumstances, if we could have avoided it we will", she told reporters in Sydney.

In an interim report released on January 24, the NSW government said the first Menindee "ecological disaster" was caused by low rainfall and large temperature variants leading to an algal bloom that sucked oxygen from the water.

The Menindee Lakes are just 3.4 percent full, according to WaterNSW.

Others blamed state and federal mismanagement of the river, which has stopped flowing in recent months and is completely dry in several areas. "They are dying in front of us".
