Thousands of dead #fish found in suburban lake in #Brisbane, #Australia

Fish Kill Alert

Residents in a community north of Brisbane are disgusted by the deaths of thousands of fish in their local lake.

Those living near a Beachmere lake first noticed birds swooping before they realised thousands of fish were dead.

They moved to the lakeside town for the views, but for days now the view and smell has been of dead, rotting fish.

About 30 species, big and small, have died in the lake, including mangrove Jack, bream, flathead, herring, and mullet.

Now locals are demanding answers from Moreton Bay Council.

“It’s been very sad to see the fish coming up and gulping for their lives. There were lots of them that didn’t make it,” resident Tracey Warr told 7News.
