Mass die off of #fish in #Cartagena, #Colombia

Fish Kill Alert

For the third time in fifteen days, fish mortality occurs again in El Laguito, Cartagena. Although the residents of this exclusive tourist area opened with a shovels a channel for water to circulate and the fish recover oxygen, the measure has not been sufficient and the fish continue to die.

The authorities installed two aerators with which they seek to mobilize and oxygenate the water, but only one works and, according to experts, although it was operating at its maximum capacity, it would also be insufficient.

In this case, it would be necessary to install a pumping system that allows the oxygenation of water.

The inhabitants of El Laguito are restless and ask for environmental solutions. An inhabitant confirms that there are even groups in social networks where possible demands and popular actions are advanced.
