‘It’s a depressing sight’: Another mass fish kill expected in Menindee
Guardian photographer Mike Bowers speaks with Menindee locals as they watch huge Murray cod struggling in the shallows.
'It’s a tragedy for the Murray Darling Basin,’ says Graeme McCrabb while holding a recently dead cod which he estimates is 10 to 20 years old.
The first mass kill was about a kilometre away above the weir but Terrea station owner Paul Grose says this could be the beginning of another mass fish kill.
'There's no oxygen in the water much at all, come by another hot day and it could be full of fish'
