Breathing apparatus installed to help dying fish at Sheffield park
Hot weather is being blamed for the deaths at Graves Park - and pumps are now being fitted to the park's fishing pond in a bid to help fish in the lake breathe.
"This is due to the hot weather and a lack of water flow into the lakes.
"We are now installing pumps to aerate the fishing pond to help reduce the problems for the fish.”
An Environment Agency spokesman said: "This is not unusual for the time of year as it is spawning season and often low oxygen due to low water levels can cause fish to become stressed.
Anyone wanting to report concerns over dead fish in local parks, ponds, lakes, rivers and streams can contact the Environment Agency on 0800 80 70 60.
