Hundreds Of Fish ‘Suddenly Die’ In Georges River, ‘Reason Unknown’ In Australia

Hundreds of fish were found floating belly-up in the Georges River at Moorebank on Saturday but the culprit remains a mystery. A fisherman called the Environmental Protection Authority after noticing the river surface was clogged with dead fish, leading to a snap investigation of the site. There have been suggestions a chemical spill caused the fish deaths but authorities are still unsure as to what happened. An EPA spokeswoman said early tests of the water found the pH, conductivity and oxygen levels were normal. Liverpool Council was ­notified and, due to the enormity of the task, emergency services were called in to help clean up.
