In the Darling River located 1,000 kilometres from Sydney, thousands of dead fish were recently discovered.

Authorities in the area told reporters that similar incidents occurred in 2018 and 2019 when almost one million fish died. Back then it was discovered that it was because of poor water flow, poor water quality, and sudden temperature changes.

After numerous studies, environmental authorities in the state of New South Wales announced that low levels of oxygen in the Darling River, Australia’s second longest river, were to blame for the mass fish die-off.

The New South Wales Department of Planning and Environment’s water division said on Twitter that “dissolved oxygen levels remain a concern for fish health” in the area.

The Jerusalem Post reported the state planning and environment agency warned river oxygen levels could fall further this weekend as temperatures rise before cooler conditions return next week.
