Fish Deaths

Every now and then large numbers of dead fish are discovered in Wimmera waterways. These deaths can be due to environmental influences, typically poor water quality; often from a lack of flow in a creek, river or wetland. In other cases, the deaths are due to pollution or disease outbreaks.
