20噸死魚被沖上岸

於西班牙東南部的馬爾梅諾潟湖,近日有近20噸魚及甲殼動物屍體被沖到岸邊。當區是西班牙主要農業生產地區之一,因大量含氮、磷等化學肥料的農業污染物流入潟湖,引致大量藻類繁殖,令水中氧氣量降低,海洋生物因而窒息。大量群眾聚集抗議要求展開調查,當局計劃收緊管制使用化肥。

20 tons of dead fish and crustacean were washed ashore recently in Mar Menor lagoon in southeastern Spain. That region is one of the major agricultural production area. Large amount of pollutants that contains nitrogen, phosphorus and other chemical fertilizers entered the lagoon, causing algae blooms which consume oxygen in water and lead to suffocation on marine creatures. the public gathered to protest and urge for investigations on the problem; Spanish authorities are going to tighten a ban on the use of harmful fertilizers.
