    have reported an incredible 100 tons of fish have died in Agam, Sumatra,
    Indonesia. The reason for the deaths is also incredible as poison (residual
    sludge feed), strong winds and lack of oxygen are being blamed.

    Sludge is also being blamed for thousands
    of fish found dead along the banks of Ipiranga River in northern Brazil. According
    to the coordinator of the Tamar project of the Chico Mendes Institute of
    Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio), João Carlos Thomé, it is possible that the deaths
    are related to local mining sludge flowing into the river.

    And an update on the world-wide bird flu
    epidemic: South Korea. Since the first case of the highly pathogenic H5N6 virus
    was confirmed in mid-November, another 43 cases have been reported and close to
    10 million chickens and ducks have been slaughtered in farms across the
    country. In a statement, the agriculture ministry announced plans to cull an
    additional 2.5 million birds, making it the worst bird flu outbreak since 2014
    when nearly 14 million were slaughtered. The World Health Organisation warned
    earlier this year that the strain has caused “severe infection” in
    humans.
