Lautertal (dpa/lhe) - Around 700 kilograms of dead fish have been recovered from a pond in Lautertal (Vogelsberg district). The body of water threatened to tip over on Tuesday due to high temperatures and a lack of water, as the chairman of the Lauterbach fishing club announced on Wednesday. Dead algae have deprived the water of oxygen. Various fire brigades pumped water into the pond to increase the oxygen level and prevent it from tipping over. On Tuesday, passers-by noticed that many dead fish were swimming on the surface of the water, it said. hessenschau.de had previously reported on it.
