It’s understood that hundreds if not thousands of fish including brown trout, juvenile salmon and bream may be affected by a fish kill on a tributary of the Bandon River in Co Cork.
IFI says it attended the site on Monday evening (26 August) following a report from a local angler — and initial investigations point to “a significant algal bloom” as the cause.
“Efforts are ongoing to assess the extent of the fish kill and an aerial survey of the lake is underway,” IFI adds.
“Cork County Council has taken water samples from the lake and river and is liaising with Inland Fisheries Ireland in their investigation.”
