Expert commentary: Menindee fish kill


Millions of dead fish were discovered this month in the Darling River at Menindee, in NSW's far west. This is the latest mass fish loss to affect this stretch of river, after the 2019 event which resulted in up to one million fish dying during NSW's devastating drought.

The native species Bony Herring (bony bream) comprise most of the fish found so far. However, locals have also observed Murray cod, golden perch, and carp among the dead.
