Thousands of fish — much more than originally anticipated — were found dead in a lake in Ravenna, Nebraska, USA, reported KHAS-TV5.
The Commissioner of the Ministry of Natural Resources, "First we have to collect samples of dead fish to determine how extensive was the death of the population. We already suspect that this will be a serious blow to the local fauna. After that, on the basis of the analysis, we may be recommend filling the local population of perch and catfish fingerlings through artificial surge, "said Brad Newcomb, Nebraska.
He added that the full restoration of the fish population in the lake can take two to three years.
Meanwhile, at low temperatures, which have been established today, the process of decomposition of dead fish may take about a month.
