On Mayachkovskom reservoir fish died

In early May, the fishermen noticed that Mayachkovskom reservoir, popularly referred to as "Kramatorsk sea", emerged a large number of dead (or dying) fish. To the coast and islands of profit tolstolobov lot, can be observed and the dead carp and carp.
Enterprising locals and fishermen tried to snap up catch those fish, which, while surfaced, but signs of life.
Fish died of starvation
Rumours of the population was increasing very different. It has been suggested that fish kills occurred because the water was poisoned, or because the winter has not been done well and underwater inhabitants died from lack of oxygen.
Specialists from the SES took samples of water and a few dead fish carcasses for analysis. Laboratory research has shown that signs of infectious diseases in fish and there is no water in the reservoir is not poisoned.
Veterinarians are more inclined to believe that the fish kills, most likely related to the weather conditions: a prolonged fall, cold and prolonged winter and spring. In addition, one of the reasons cited in the winter and no holes in the ice, which is why fish started anoxia. It was also found that the stomach in tolstolobov were empty, so there is a version that the fish died, including, and famine.
Unfortunately, incidents of mass fish kills occur frequently. For example, earlier this month at the Azov sea washed ashore more than 23 tons of bull. Fish flooded the coast for 16 miles. The cause of the mass death of fish remains unclear. Similar problems were also in other regions.
Health control
The dead fish, of course, sorry. But there is another question: Do not get it on the shelves of the market? After all, the locals did not lose time in vain. Chief Medical Officer of Vasily Goncharenko sure that will not happen.
— All the fish, which are traded in the markets, mandatory checks veterinary service, — he says.
The same opinion is shared by the head of the trade Irina Shishkin. However, she stressed that in any case you can not buy food at natural markets.
— Our people are very careless about this issue — said Irina Shishkin. — For example, we recently conducted a market test. A woman in the wrong place, sells chicken carcass and giblets. Without documents, without examination. Is drawn up, and at this point, and another woman comes in front of us buys a hen. And who will be to blame if the meat is poor quality? How many times is: do not buy at the natural market, but people did not seem to hear.
Despite all the reassuring statements of officials and doctors, citizens still fear to buy low-quality products. And, by the way, if we talk about the fish, occur complaints from customers. Sources say that sometimes the fish smells drugs, which it "pumped" to fewer ports.
Unfortunately, we can not always completely safe, but to limit the options of poor purchase possible. To do this, the selection of goods is necessary to pay attention to the smell of fish, the look, especially the eyes and gills. And if you will shred of doubt — do not take.
