The first of many reports on the #fishkill - New South Wales has released its interim investigation @politicsabc #mdb dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/habita…
The report says they cannot yet say with absolute certainty what caused the fish deaths at Menindee
Scientists have examined the ear bones of the fish and found specimens up to 25 years old. Amazingly they also might be able to use the ear bones to establish where the fish came from originally.
For people who are in to fish and fishing, these are the main types of fish that suffocated when the algal bloom likely died and the oxygen was sucked out of the water.

NSW Ministers John Barilaro and Niall Blair are now holding a media conference on the interim fish kill report
John Barilaro has burned Labor leader Michael Daley says the opposition leader purchased a brand new akubra for his trip to Menindee and could not pronounce the names of many regional towns in New South Wales #fishkill #menindee
DPI says this is actually the most likely reason the fish died. #fishkill #menindee #agchatoz
NSW Govt has appointed someone to handle the major water issues that are looming in the bush including WATER CARTING and towns running dry dpc.nsw.gov.au/programs-and-s…

Niall Blair says there are further federal investigations that will look more closely at the Menindee lakes environmental water releases. He says that needs broader investigation. THIS IS INTERESTING
NSW Water Minister Niall Blair clearly signalling in this media conference that there were decisions made by the Murray Darling Basin Authority (federal agency) that need to be further looked at.
Also, I know reportspeak can be hard to digest sometimes. But I kind of love this reference to "recruiting" new fish to replace the stock that died.
Here are some pictures of what the ear bones of fish look like, they can be used to determine how old the fish are and even where they came from apparently.
Niall Blair says he has shut down his social media after the threats he and his staff received over the Murray Darling #mdb #fishkill
