Mass die off of #fish in #Laranjeiras, #Brazil
Technicians from the State Environmental Administration (Adema) are investigating, on Saturday (20), the fish mortality in a stretch of the Sergipe River, in the region of Pedra Branca Povo, located in the municipality of Laranjeiras.
The number of dead animals has not yet been specified but, according to Adema, the number is considerable. The event occurred close to the region’s industries.
The situation was noted by the community last Thursday (18). The technicians went to the site on Friday (19) and collected water samples to analyze what would have caused the lack of oxygen in the river.
