Plea for help for fish

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

PEO­PLE are be­ing urged to watch out for fish in dis­tress in wa­ter­ways around the city as part of an En­vi­ron­ment Agency ap­peal.

In sum­mer, rain com­bined with warm tem­per­a­tures can cause low oxy­gen lev­els in wa­ter­courses, lead­ing to fish be- com­ing sick or even dy­ing.

Signs of fish in dis­tress are fish gasp­ing at the sur­face of the wa­ter, look­ing in­ac­tive or swim­ming on their sides or up­side down. Peo­ple are asked to re­port any sight­ings on the En­vi­ron­ment Agency in­ci­dent hot­line num­ber 0800 80 70 60.
