As we arrived at Saltwater Lake we found council vehicles and workers about, including a boat in the water – they were scoping up dead fish by the dozens, and some were huge. They did not know the cause and were sending some carcasses off for autopsies.
Unlike four years ago when low oxygen levels were blamed, this time it has occurred on a high king tide where that cannot be the reason. The council are now cleaning up the mess and deflected the matter to the Department of Environment and Science.
If anyone knows what the results are and would like to do more contact Brian Venables at
