850 kg of fish die due to Kakhovka HPP explosion, shallowing of reservoir in Dnipropetrovsk region
Due to the Russian explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant and the shallowing of the Kakhovka reservoir in the Dnipropetrovsk region, 850 kg of fish have died. The losses amount to more than UAH 7 million
The head of the Dnipro Regional Military Administration, Serhiy Lysak reported this.
“There was a massive fish pestilence in the Marianske, Zelenodolsk community. It was caused by the rapid shallowing of the reservoir, which was caused by the Russians who blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station. More than 850 kilograms of bioresources died. The damage caused by the Russian forces to the region's fisheries is over UAH 7.6 million,” he wrote.
According to the official, the shoreline has already been cleared of fish. Now it is being utilized.
As a result of the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, Ukraine's only state-owned sturgeon farm was flooded. This could lead to the extinction of this fish species in the country's water bodies.
On June 6, Russians blew up the dam of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant. Read more about it here.
