In recent days, large numbers of fish have been dying for unknown reasons in Ban Thach River, Tam Ky City, central province of Quang Nam. This has caused environmental and health worries.
People in Tam Ky City said that most deaf fish are carp and grass carp.
Duong Chi Cong, Director of the Quang Nam Department of Natural Resources and Environment said that the Department had taken samples. In a few days, the Department will announce the results.
Along the river, there are no factories or production bases to cause pollution. The use of dynamite to catch fish has also been eliminated as a probable cause.
