Thousands of dead fish on the beach

Thousands of dead fish were discovered yesterday on the Black Sea coast, the biggest problems being reported in Jupiter and Mamaia resorts. Specialists claim high temperatures and the massive influx of fresh water from the river Danube are to blame. “Each area can have its specific reasons. Seawater samples taken in Mamaia show that the oxygen level is very low. There are also other factors – the presence of fresh water in the sea and very high temperatures of 27-28 C in Mamaia. Low mobility fish enter a state of lethargy, some end up dieing. This phenomenon is not dangerous for humans but it’s better not to touch the fish,” Simion Nicolaev, director of the National Institute for Marine Research and Development, stated for Realitatea TV. Specialists state that this phenomenon will stop when the sea’s salinity returns to normal levels, something that will happen with the help of marine currents that will bring in seawater with high salinity levels.
