What killed the fish at Cockburn Sound? The official report.

Here’s the official documentation for the explanation for the deaths of fish at Cockburn Sound late 2015.

To summarise, they’ve reported to have found severe gill damage in the fishes examined, linking this to Chaetoceros algal bloom that occurred around the same time (a result of nutrient-rich waters with poor flushing).

See the report at the link below.
