However, the analysis showed — the water is normal. "

According to officials, the cause of the plague of mass fish lies in the excessive desire of tenants to save water. This winter, all the lakes are covered with a thick layer of ice. Oxygen supply was completely blocked, and the fish simply gasped. If would-be owners were allowed to go ice fishing enthusiasts fishing, as is done in ponds republican society of hunters and fishermen, the oxygen would be fed into the water through the work they have holes, explained the expert.

"In the end, it was possible to establish a reasonable fee for each gear or simply for access to fishing and the fishermen would have done for the owner of the lake all the necessary in severe cold, work. Rather than make money, ended up with a huge loss, "- stated Tsapish.

Only Falesti district lost about 400 tonnes of fish, Comrat — 300 tons, the losses in other areas specified, the inspector said.

A lesson not only for producers of fish, but also for decision-makers of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industry, in charge of the industry ", — he said.
