Fish Kills in Queensland, Australia

Summer has set in in Queensland, Australia and fish kills too have started to take place.

A few reported so far -

Fish kill in Beachmere, north of Brisbane.

"There is a very high water temperature at a shallow depth of the lake - it's not very well shaded, it's not flushed, [there are] low dissolved oxygen levels in the lake and this is all contributing to this fishkill," he said. "
