Thousands of dead fish washed in New Jersey due to a major fish kill. At first, the authorities did not know what it was, but they discovered when they were closer. The fish died because there was not enough oxygen in the water for them. At the moment, a New Jersey marina is trying to clean up those dead fish because the smell is getting worse and people are complaining about it.
- Thousands of dead fish are cleaned up from New Jersey.
- They died because there was not enough oxygen in the water due to pollution.
- We are hoping the authorities will manage to clean up all of them.
This is not the only problem. Boaters do not want to come down because of what happened there. People can’t even see the water due to how much dead fish are there. Scientists said that they were likely to chase into a tidal creek by some bigger fish, but the water did not have enough suffocated. They will be cleaned up and put in a dump truck so that nobody will be disturbed by them.
Even though people were very pleased with what happened, researchers said this was a good sign. However, the fact that is was not enough oxygen in the water is not a good sign. This means that pollution made water a worse place for the fish and it reduced the oxygen level. We should expect more events of this kind to happen because of it.
This event was unusual as there were millions of dead fish. People have not seen something like this in the past few years. Water pollution happens because are throwing toxic substances in the water. It does not matter if it a lake, river or ocean, the effects are the same. They will affect the water, fish will not able to live there anymore and our water supply will be in danger. The pollution is getting in the groundwater, that we use for our activities. Take care of our rivers and seas if you want to have clean water to drink.
There are so many factors who do not care about the environment. Climate change is not a problem for the future generations. It is affecting us. For example, there are already ships than can navigate in Arctic regions, where this thing was not possible. Moreover, those dead fish from New Jersey were killed due to the pollution. We must change something or there will be more dangerous effects in the future.
