Quebec’s Ministry of Environment says a hydroelectric dam on the Lièvre River is responsible for thousands of dead fish.
Ministry officials say an over-saturation in gas in the water at the Brookfield Hydroelectric Dam was killing the fish.
“It’s a phenomenon when there’s too much air too much gas in the water,” said Michel Rousseau, Quebec’s assistant deputy minister of environment.
“When a fish comes in contact with this, it can die rapidly”
