Dead Fish Wash up in Thousands In Third Mass Kill

Dead fish were filmed floating along the banks of the Darling River in the far-west New South Wales town of Menindee on Monday, January 28, after the region was hit by its third mass fish kill since December.

The previous two kills came as a result of blue-green algal blooms, which stripped the water of oxygen, according to ABC.

It was reported a large drop in temperature over the Australia Day weekend may have exacerbated the algae bloom.

An earlier kill on the weekend of January 5 and 6 outraged locals who blamed the incident on excessive draining of the rivers, by WaterNSW, for irrigation, leaving the lakes almost dry.

The government said the drought in NSW was to blame.

The NSW government are investigating the most recent fish kill.
