Millions of dead fish have been discovered in a river in a small town in Australia.
The widespread fish deaths were initially noted on Friday morning in the town of Menindee in New South Wales (NSW).
The Darling-Baaka river was affected by a continuous heatwave, according to the state’s river authority.
Locals claim that despite the town having recently undergone a big mass fish death, this is the largest fish death event to have hit the area.
In a Facebook post, the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) claimed the heatwave put “additional stress on a system that has suffered harsh circumstances from wide-scale flooding”.
