Millions of fish were found dead in the south-eastern region of Australia due to lack of water in water ponds and rivers due to extreme heat.
According to the report of the news organization, the officials of the Department of Primary Industries in the New South Wales region say that the reason for the death of such a large number of fish is the extreme heat wave.
The report said that the death of the fish was possibly due to low oxygen levels as the hot weather required more oxygen for the fish, which worsened the situation.
On the other hand, the residents of the nearby town of Menindi in the southern region of Australia have complained of a strong smell due to the presence of dead fish.
John Denning, a local citizen, said that the sight of such a large number of dead fish is terrifying and the stench is the most difficult to live with.
It should be noted that during the severe drought in late 2018 and early 2019, fish kills on the Menindi River were high and locals estimated the number to be in the millions.
