Thousands of #fish found dead in lake #Rautalampi, #Finland

Fish Kill Alert

Some thousands of kilos of dead fish have been found in the lake since last Wednesday, but the exact amount is not yet known by the authorities.

Samples of fish and lake water have been taken and submitted for examination to the North Savo Living Center. The police will also investigate whether there is any reason to suspect a crime.

On Monday morning , Anu Sepponen, the mayor of Rautalampi, visited the lake with a fish expert from the ely center. The purpose is to map how many dead fish still float in the lake and its shores.

Really big fish have been spotted. We just looked at the pictures that there have been more than eight pounds of dead pike, Sepponen says.

According to Sepponen, the number of fish is difficult to evaluate visually, because they easily sink in windy weather.
