There is no end to the mystery of the massive fish deaths in the famous Oder River on the border between Germany and neighboring Poland. However, the administration of both countries is still not clear about the cause of the cruel fate of so many tons of fish.
Dead fish are floating in the Oder river on the Germany-Poland border.
This year is inauspicious and inauspicious not only for Germany, but for almost every country in Europe. It’s the hot fields, waterless river basins, and the mysterious death of millions of fish of different species.
At the end of last July, suddenly, for some mysterious reason, dead fish were seen floating in the Oder river on the border between Germany and Poland. In the last few days, several species of dead fish covered several kilometers of the rivers of the two countries. Everywhere the eye can see only dead fish.
According to local fishermen and administration, such a death of so many fish is rare in the last few decades.
Local fisherman Holmut Chahan said, ‘Look, I have been hunting fish in this river for forty years, but I have never seen so many fish die. I can’t accept that. Just thinking about it makes me shiver.
German local administration official Karina Doerke said that the local fishermen have been seriously affected in this incident.
It is their main source of livelihood. This loss is unacceptable
The administrations of the two countries have entered the field to investigate the cause of the dead fish floating. Regional battalions are deployed in more than 150 areas on both banks of the river. Samples collected from the river are also being tested.
Earlier, Prime Minister Matthias Morawiecki fired the head of Poland’s water management agency for negligence and responsibility for failing to prevent fish deaths. At the same time, one million Polish coins were announced to be identified and handed over to anyone found involved in such a case.
Meanwhile, in a new test, the existence of harmful synthetic chemical substances and dangerous toxins in the water of the Oder River has been found, researchers said. However, environmental organizations say that so many fish have died because of the negligence of the Polish government.
The Oder River flows from the neighboring Czech Republic through Germany and Poland to the Baltic Sea.
