Fish kill on the Clyde

We are awaiting further information on a fish kill that occurred in the River Clyde during the past week. Large numbers of dead salmon have been reported between Blantyre and the Tidal Weir near Glasgow Green. It is understood that some of the fish were removed from the river by the ‘Water Witch’ clean-up vessel and dumped in a skip at the King George V Dock. SEPA are currently investigating the cause of the incident and will be looking at monitoring data for information on water quality, as well as liaising with Scottish Water and looking into a possible pollution event. We will issue an update once more information becomes available.
