Reporting fish kills
Fish kills can be caused by poor water quality, particularly oxygen depletion, which may be due to natural causes, or by chemical poisoning by substances such as pesticides. Reporting fish kills promptly can help subsequent investigations into the cause of the incident.
The department helps the government, business and industry to assess risks and manage situations that may potentially contaminate the environment. EHP manages and monitors these situations through a modern and innovative regulatory, compliance, investigation and enforcement program.
